Somebody convince me that tags for scheduling and process (or operating-system, or similar) wouldn't be just as good. Go on, let's hear it.

Process scheduling in the OS is a most special special case of general scheduling problems in that you can assume lots of nice things. I guess you could remove in favor of + ; I think that people looking for (general) scheduling problems would perceive such questions as noise, though. From what I remember of the scheduling theory lecture I took and what people ask under , these are two different and largely separate worlds. Therefore I created the tag, and vote for it to stay.

  • $\begingroup$ Last time round, you argued the other way! +1 here, since I agree with you, these are very separate worlds that use vaguely related concepts with the same name. $\endgroup$ Apr 24 '12 at 23:12
  • $\begingroup$ @Gilles: Hu, weird. Funny how opinions change. Reading my reasoning from back then, it still does make sense. I guess I changed my viewpoint on this from a "tags as classification" to "tags as searching tool". $\endgroup$
