Similar to Kill the [software-tools] tag, I don't see the point in keeping around.

Typical meta tag. It doesn't explain what the question is about. If you're looking for a tool to do something, then tag it with something. Actually, if you're looking for "a tool", then probably your question suffers from the X Y Problem anyway.

Also, it raises the question where the difference is between a "tool", a "program", or software in general.

The tag doesn't make sense, therefore please burninate!

  • +1. However, this question from the related list shows that the opposite thing was done last year -- questions were retagged TO tools.

  • Well, that's not really the opposite, it's just that two meta-tags were merged into one.
