They sound good across the board.

The developers went through a great pains to get the c++ tag working.

"Every time someone tags a post cpp, somewhere a pony dies."

cpp, gmaps, winforms, vs20*, windows[-]20* are obvious (done)

mobile-web and mobileweb are sensible to merge, but note that the more popular at the moment is mobileweb (only 2 mobile-web). I've merged into mobileweb, but easy to rename.

Open to feedback on the others.

Can you ban the cpp tag? – John Gietzen Jan 11 '10 at 21:35
Nope; that functionality is "planned", but I'm not part of the dev team so I can't influence it other than nagging. – Marc Gravell Jan 11 '10 at 21:37
Updated to include a couple more. – John Gietzen Jan 12 '10 at 1:23
But what if I want to ask a question about the C Pre-Processor, cpp? – Teddy Jan 12 '10 at 7:14
Then tag it preprocessor. – John Gietzen Jan 12 '10 at 16:31

The tags [oo] and [object-oriented] should both go to [oop].

I vote [hex] as the tag to keep.

Object-oriented is more popular, says Google. Consider: google.com/… – John Gietzen Jan 11 '10 at 22:48
SO stats: object-oriented× 275, oo× 57, oop× 1751. Though it brings up the usual question, do we try to match google or go with the community consensus. Hard Choice. – Lance Roberts Jan 11 '10 at 23:01
