Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Then also something needs to be done about and . I'm not sure what's best with them. They're somewhat different, and yet they're likely to be confused by users.

I retagged the ones in case 2, and the remaining one in case three. There aren't hundreds of these, so manually retagging by small batches shouldn't be a problem. – Mat Nov 5 '11 at 13:46
[operating] is now orphan. [system] and [systems] need a lot of work though, not sure what the best approach is. – Mat Nov 5 '11 at 16:56
Both should be burninated. – agf Nov 5 '11 at 19:34
I don't think burnination is appropriate here. In some cases, the tag is being used completely "correctly," like when talking about the system() built-in function/class in many languages.
