Considering [visual-studio-lightswitch] is just at 25 characters and thus usable, it seems like a perfect tag - you'll get it in your autocomplete whether you start with "visual studio" or "lightswitch".

It might be wise to add a synonym coming from [lightswitch], provided we don't have anything else that could be tagged as such. [vs-lightswitch] might also be an option.

@Ian Ahahaha, I can't vote on those. Maybe I should start pushing for 2k on Stack Overflow at some point... – Grace Note Aug 5 '10 at 13:43
Not worth the effort. – Ladybug Killer Aug 5 '10 at 13:46
@Lady Probably not. I'll just suffice to slowly trickle up over time. – Grace Note Aug 5 '10 at 13:52

How did I beat you? We have opposing viewpoints so it isn't as if my earlier timestamp matters. – Grace Note Aug 5 '10 at 13:22
Well, by suggesting the two tags in your second paragraph... I do have to say I like your synonym idea even better – Rickjaah Aug 5 '10 at 13:23
