Yes, nuke it. Bump: I've started the cleanup of this tag. If anyone else would like to assist, please feel free. Please perform your edits in small batches so that the front page doesn't stay inundated with these edits.


I agree that remote by itself is not a useful tag name. Of 451 questions currently tagged remote 36 of them are also tagged desktop.

The Office 365 suite is a collection of end-user tools like Word, Excel or Outlook that can be obtained via a subscription license, as opposed to Office 2016 which is obtained through a one-off payment.
