We have two tags representing 'executable programs':
An executable is a fully compiled program that can be run without further processing.
An exe is the executable file format used on Windows operating systems.
They could probably be merged, however I don't see why we have the tags in the first place.
- They're both used between platforms (despite [exe]'s tag description to the contrary)
- They don't add a useful filter to the question (judging from the solo follower between them),
- They're far too broad for referencing specific programs, there's no 'area of expertise' being represented here.
- They don't represent a specific problem space. Questions using this tag aren't having problems with executables, they're having problems with running executables from USB, or compatibility with Windows 8, (or even Linux). Sometimes the tags are used simply because the question mentions an executable which isn't even the crux of the issue.
With these points in mind, do you believe these tags should be burned?
