Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I think that should be a synonym of . I know that there are much more questions about , but I think that is much more meaningful.

I would rather use for the questions where is used as per meaning given to it by the tag wiki, and for those questions about embedded SQL.

The current tag wiki for says:

Entity SQL is a storage-independent query language that is similar to SQL. Entity SQL allows you to query entity data, either as objects or in a tabular form.

I would also say we should use since it will be found by those searching on embedded. It's way down on the list now, but with all the questions added, it will move up and be found pretty quick by searchers.

There are 31 questions (at this moment) tagged with and , and according to the wiki of I guess they are referring to this particular Microsoft language which is part of the .Net Framework.

I'm not an expert on but the Wikipedia page makes me think of something different (Since it lists the DBMS that implement embedded SQL) and the Microsoft version does not seem to use "embedded" anywhere in its description.

So, at least a clean-up is needed but at the moment I wouldn't agree with merging this tags.

Often are question wrong tagged. The entity framework has no direct relations to Entity SQL, however I think that a cleanup is needed but I read more often esql for embeded sql. A merge would avoid this errors. – rekire Jan 17 '13 at 5:09
