I was asking a question about Windows 8 and Windows RT and I looked for tags starting in Windows that could be RT, but found none. Only to later have the tag of WinRT added later.

I think there should be a synonym of WinRT <- WindowsRT or Windows-RT.


Microsoft has made another naming blunder here. WinRT is not the same thing as Windows RT. If there's any tag changing to be proposed, it should be to alias to , which does not currently exist.

    That is terrible... But if that is the case, then there should be a separate Windows-RT tag? – Justin Jul 3 '12 at 19:15
  • Not until there are actually questions about Windows RT that are on topic for SO. There have been no public beta/RCs of RT yet, only of the x86-based Windows 8. Given that RT is exclusively intended for ARM tablets and will probably only be licensed to OEMs, I doubt that we're going to see Windows RT questions any time soon. Further, given that targeting the Windows Runtime will allow your application to run on both Windows 8 and Windows RT, and given that Windows RT is "just" Windows 8 on ARM, I'm not sure we'll ever really need a tag for it. Time will tell. – Charles Jul 3 '12 at 19:18
