seems to being used for all the wrong reasons. There only seems to be a handful of questions which are actually about the Windows 8 (desktop).

What should we do with this tag?

The questions relating to the phone should be re-tagged see How should we form tags for specific WP versions?

  • What did you suggest? Make it a synonym or block? I know we can do the previous but don't know about the latter. Nov 23 '13 at 14:48

I would suggest re-tagging all the appropriate questions to (which perhaps should be renamed to since that has the most votes) and then adding a wiki for .

  • I agree, especially with renaming the 8.0 Apollo tags. It really bugs me!

  • I really can't agree with that logic. The operating systems are branded as Windows Phone 7.5. I would at least prefer WP 7.5, WP 7.1, WP 8 than the "code name" tags. Should we start a new meta based on new info?

  • Already have your post in meta.windowsphone.stackexchange.com/questions/173/… and I have added it as a featured question. So let that brew for a little bit longer.
