We have two tags that barely express the same thing :

  • Software
  • Applications

I try to merge most of Applications into Software, but for the last two, I ran into some troubles.

These last two posts concern iOS applications and I can't really retag them to software.

  1. Do we keep the applications tag for iOS applications ?
  2. Do we merge applications into software ?
  3. Do we create a special tag for iOS applications ?

Technically, I see Applications as a subset of Software, but that distinction is probably lost on most people.

While I am all for consistency, I wonder how useful these tags are. Most questions are going to be about either software or hardware. I think software-recommendation is a more meaningful tag.

    That's why I removed software where software-recommendation was already in place. – Studer Aug 27 '10 at 9:22

    agreed Studer, I did the same thing when I first added all the software-recommendation tags. – Robert S Ciaccio Aug 27 '10 at 16:55
