This is done. Attempting to use this tag - or edit any post that currently uses it - will result in the following error: Which also links to this discussion: Should we split the installation tag into seperate tags for the installation of Ubuntu and the installation of software? Y'all might want to add further guidance there.

We also have various windows tags as well as e.g. macosx, kali or debian although we do not support questions that are specific to those foreign operating systems.

I think that the confusion exist because the "post" tag does not have meaning or the possible meanings are misleading : are we talking about the act "to post" or the content ? If we are talking about the act, a tag "posting" should be better and yes the question you mentioned fits in. It can be helpful to have a tag like this one. If we are talking about ...
