What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I think that should be a synonym of . The acronym IDE stands for "Integrated Development Environment". Their tag wikis are similar...

a computer program that facilitates software-development by providing features beyond that of a simple text editor

extends a text editor by providing built-in hooks

IDE should definitely be the master tag, as its wiki is much more informative and there are 4 times as many questions tagged.

These are not the same thing. I don't use an IDE, but I certainly have a development environment... I am a developer. The tag wiki for development-environment is narrower than I expect it to be... the word Integrated should go. – Tshepang Dec 17 '13 at 0:11
