and tags both refer to the same application: SQL Server Management Studio. As a result there's no need to keep both tags around.

While 21 questions in each here doesn't give either tag priority, checking other SE sites shows:

Stack overflow has 940 for favor of and ~200 for specific versions; and 219 for .

Serverfault has 114 for , 18 for , and 20 for ; however only has a tag wiki entry. doesn't exist at all as a tag there.

DBA.SE has 118 questions for and none for any other variants.
