I don't see any use for the tag.

It would seem to me that the only valid uses are when it is used instead of the tag.

    Completely agree. Linux is just another term for the kernel, and the latter is less ambiguous. Commented Feb 14, 2011 at 22:09

Looking at the list of questions, I think some of the questions need to be cleaned up first. It is not clear to me what this tag is actually used for based on browsing 15-30 questions with it.

    That's exactly my point - the tag isn't being used for anything, just being randomly added to questions by users.
