I see there are a lot of questions tagged mac (749) and even more tagged osx (860) on SuperUser. However, I find the usage of the tags to be quite inconsistent. A lot of people tag their questions mac simply because they're using a Mac, yet completely ignore the osx tag, or they use both of them, just to be on the safe side. That seems completely useless to me; should I tag all my questions pc just because I'm using one?
Should there be a clear distinction made between the 2 tags? I feel that all hardware related questions should be tagged mac and all software related questions tagged osx. There should be less overlap between the 2 tags. I've retagged a few questions lately, removing the mac tag, but I'm not sure if I should be doing this. Any thoughts on this issue?
osx, as fretje suggested. This might help clarify things for users tagging their question. They would start typing
macand they'd be able to see the
mac-osxtag, which is usually the one that they want; most of the questions are probably about the OS, not the hardware.
