I just came across the tag that has about 81 questions tagged against it. A quick look at the questions seem to suggest that they are either graphic problems or boot error. I am not sure what we should do with the tag. So, I thought I would start a meta post to discuss the matter.

Update: 95 questions have been tagged with this. We should do something about this already!

    Why do anything? It is a common Linux problem that people are looking for an answer for. Perhaps, as suggested elsewhere, there should be a canonical question/answer for black-screen issues. In that case, perhaps the tag could be removed and the existing questions re-tagged. Commented Jun 27, 2012 at 21:21

Kill it! We kill it and forget about it! Do it fast, do it clean, just like Dexter would!
