Stack Exchange network consists of 177 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
The tags recommendation and recommendations seem to be synonyms. Unfortunately I do not have the required score in these tags to propose a synonym. I figured this was the next best thing :)
I edited the single topic in recommendation to more specifically use software-rec.
It's probably not worth it to create a synonym.
I also feel that recommendation is dangerously close to being useless. In the (probably very few) cases where neither software-rec nor hardware-rec fit, it doesn't exactly help.
