I'm sorry, but it's totally STUPID that you can't use something like 10.8 or execute as a tag... it's the version of my mac and it's an important piece of information. I shouldn't need a reputation of 1500 to tell people which version I have. that is DUMB!

    There are over 1000 questions tagged as osx-mountain-lion. This was chosen because the tag name 10.8 wouldn't have meaning on its own, and the community has decided to prefer the names instead of the version numbers for OS X because they're more frequently used.

    Please compose your complaint in some way other than an ejaculation of disparagement, with something that at least resembles an argument for your point of view, and maybe even a proposal for change. As it stands, this is just a waste of our time.

Neither or work very well as standalone tags. They're both too vague.

You can add the tag which is meant to convey exactly the sort of version information you're looking to add.

There's no good solution for , because it's just too vague to be useful.

You should put this kind of information in your question (text). If you must, you could put it in the title as well...

If you really must, you could open a request (here on meta) to add the tag, I suppose. (But I do not think it will be honored.)

The 1500 reputation requirement is to prevent lots of unnecessary/incorrect tag creations. Which seems to be working nicely in this situation..!
