It's too much work to refer to our site each time with the formal name of Unix and Linux Stack Exchange, so we tend to shorten it. I have so far seen 4 ways of doing so:
- unix.SE - This seems to me more commonly-known but there is an existing site with that exact url; even if there wasn't,
.seis a top-level domain.
- unix.SX - Gets rid of the existing site problem, but .sx still looks a top-level doman (we don't have them all memorised)
- UL - Ummm... too much little info (who would guess?), but at least it covers the L part of the site.
- unix-SE - Gets rid of the is this a url question, and we get to keep the more common
sething, instead of now having to get used to the
You can easily guess which one I'd go with.
