I wrote a question today where I stated that I was "writing to disk" and wondered if that sounded old fashioned. I wanted to ask for opinions and poll what others felt and to see if other terms made more sense such as "writing to a file", depending on the context.
This is a programming related question on writing to a file on disk. I understand that opinion-based questions are off-topic for all of the sites that I thought about asking it on.
I know that we have English Language & Usage but I felt that it wasn't appropriate there either because I wanted to query other programmers.
Am I correct to believe that Stack Exchange as a whole is not the appropriate place to ask this kind of question?
