How should we tag these posts?

Currently, they are getting OS-specific tags and tag. A few had the tag, so I've added it to others, but I'm not sure this is correct.


OS specific tags are good, as is the setup tag (I think this is good for any aspect of setting up the Pi.)

Not convinced on the operating-systems tag though - isn't this implied by the OS specific tag anyway? I say remove it.

    The os tag allows you to find them all together. – Alex Chamberlain Jun 13 '12 at 13:28
  • @AlexChamberlain True, but I'd say looking for all OS specific questions is a very wide birth to have a tag, especially in the future when it's likely many more systems will be commonly available. – berry120 Jun 13 '12 at 13:30
  • I think the operating-systems tag should be used when the question involves multiple operating systems, such as OS selection - "What is the best OS for X application?". – Alex L Jun 13 '12 at 14:25
  • @AlexL Is right. the OS tag was intended for questions where the OS was necessarily ambiguous. – Jivings Jul 13 '12 at 22:35

The tags should be becoming self explanitory by now. If users are confused about what tags to use then I think we have a problem with our tag wikis which probably needs action.

We have OS specific tags and . We also have the more specific . These should be enough for these questions.

Ask yourself what would make the question easiest to find, and what tag it would benefit from most.
