Are we removing general OS tags? Did I miss a meeting?
I've seen some edits in the review queue where users are removing general OS tags along with the burmination candidates. Is this community policy? I've seen this question but it doesn't seem to be very popular. By 'general' I don't mean 'generic', I mean tags describing the OS family like windows, linux, osx. The edits I saw were removing linux from questions that were tagged ubuntu and replacing windows with windows-7.
Personally, I find the general OS tags extremely useful. Since I am a Linux geek, I have Linux as a favorite tag, that way I can easily home in on questions about any Linux including those I have not added to my favorites. If people remove the general OS tags I don't see these questions. They also help people find questions when searching for general keywords. Adding specific tags is great and very useful but not at the expense of the general ones.
So, is this site policy and if so, where's the meta post so I can vote it down? If it is not site policy, let's make it clear that this is not wanted, please upvote this. If I am alone in my affection for these tags, let's make that clear too, please downvote this.
