I suggest merging , into . I propose this because there is no reason to have multiple tags on one topic.

Uses for

  • Virtualbox
  • Some OS have problems with multi core
  • Etc...

What is the final verdict? and or just and merge the others into it.

  • Yes, but quad core has twice as many cores as dual core. And what about hex core. I suppose you want to merge that in, too? :-) Good idea. – fixer1234 Nov 21 '14 at 18:37
  • But I only have problems specifically with TWO cores! When I use fewer or more, everything works fine! I'm such a special snowflake! :( Why won't you let me be a special snowflake, fixer1234? – allquixotic Nov 21 '14 at 18:48
  • @allquixotic Lol, but that just adds another tag for people to choose from. If you can only use two cores, it is probably a software problem :) – QuyNguyen2013 Nov 21 '14 at 18:49
  • I was kidding. :) – allquixotic Nov 21 '14 at 18:49
  • @allquixotic I know... I said lol – QuyNguyen2013 Nov 21 '14 at 18:50

    @allquixotic - So it is agreed? We will add the [special-snowflake] tag? – fixer1234 Nov 21 '14 at 21:08

    I'd think even multicore is very meta. – Journeyman Geek Nov 21 '14 at 21:19
  • @JourneymanGeek - to what extent are multi-core questions processor-specific? – fixer1234 Nov 21 '14 at 21:56

    AU contrare, they are non specific, and I don't think there's too many issues specific to multicore systems – Journeyman Geek Nov 21 '14 at 22:02
  • @JourneymanGeek Synonymizing or changing to CPU maybe? – QuyNguyen2013 Nov 21 '14 at 23:12
  • @JourneymanGeek True, but Virtualbox and the likes... – QuyNguyen2013 Nov 21 '14 at 23:22
  • @JourneymanGeek - I looked through the questions and many deal with issues specific to multi-core processors. Is your point that it isn't necessary to differentiate single vs. multi because simply using [cpu] will attract the right readers? – fixer1234 Nov 22 '14 at 21:19

    yup. precisely. – Journeyman Geek Nov 22 '14 at 21:20

    So what's the final verdict, have [multi-core] plus [cpu] or just [cpu]? – fixer1234 Nov 26 '14 at 17:21

    I find having a tag that recognizes the multi-core aspect of CPUs useful vs. having only the [cpu] tag. But I'd go for "one [multi-core] tag to rule them all"! – I say Reinstate Monica Dec 5 '14 at 13:50
