[CentOS] Color Coded Labels (Like OSX)

I've been doing that as a stop-gap solution.  I view most of my files in list mode and wanted something that would color the whole line rather than just the icon.  One advantage that emblems have is that there are more of them, but OSX colors are so clear I don't even need to think twice what I'm doing with them.

Not quite the same, but if you are using nautilus, you can give
"Emblems" to files.

Just select a file or two, right-click, Properties->Emblems

I bet konqueror under KDE can do the same.
