I don’t personally use tags when I write blog posts because it’s essentially just another form of categories to organize the content on your website for your readers.

I was just reading an article on WordPress Beginner about what’s coming in WordPress 3.1 (due to be released end of December). Here’s a bullet list of the features in the works:
Ajaxified Admin Screens
Separate Network Dashboard
Quick Press Template Tag
Improved UI for Searching and Browsing Installed Themes
Post Templates / Post Styles
Advanced Taxonomy Queries
