We could ban the
unix tag (I think the SE software permits this), or give it a useful meaning (such as questions requesting portability accross variants). I lean towards the former because of the potential for confusion. Then what is a good tag for questions expecting a portable answer?
variant-agnostic (hard to guess)?
I've retagged a few
unix questions — mostly the ones where there was or should have been a variant tag as well (
linux). I think some of the remaining
unix tags are superfluous (the ones about unix history make sense) but won't go further there's a consensus (which there clearly isn't now).
distribution-choice in the process (there are probably more questions where it would apply) — it seemed appropriate, but feel free to argue. I've also created
design would be better, or something else? Ditto for
I couldn't come up with good tags for a few questions:
- Quantify unix responsiveness
- User's Login date and login time (something about user accounting?)
- X-based email for reading mail from cron jobs (
mua, but askers might not know the term)
unix tag is now banned.
