We seem to have vnc, vncserver and vnc-viewer.
(Please note that I have retagged a small number vnc-server --> vncserver as per Ask a SU mod room)
Some questions are tagged with all three, which seems pretty weird given that we have vnc.
How should we retag them?

Why not just have the vnc tag only, and then you figure out if there is a problem in the server or the client from just reading the question.
I doubt that there are many SU users that are experts in ONLY vnc-clients so I don't foresee loosing any value by dropping the other two tags.

vncserver and vnc-viewer should be removed (and replaced with vnc where necessary).
More product-specific tags should be applied where it makes sense, like
These are all perfectly fine for me but I would use them in addition to vnc.

VNC - arbitrary term for all VNCs
- RealVNC - Branded VNC type
- VNCclient - executable name of branded type
VNC-server - The server itself of a VNC connection
VNC-Client - The client in a VNC connection.
It is something like this? with other brands, and executables names.
trying to form a pattern here that is repeated elsewhere.
