How did we end up with a texas tag?
Can we please burninate it?
I'm guessing that it's being used to refer to parts made by TI.
Generally, I would say that all manufacturer tags should be avoided. Because all those companies tend to merge and split like crazy.
Tags should be about the product family, not the manufacturer.
For example, use avr not atmel. Because suddenly Atmel goes poof and ceases to exist. Also the tag atmel is too broad since they have/had multiple product lines, so it doesn't really add anything meaningful.
For reference, the stance over at SO is to burninate all company name tags, especially if they have ambivalent meanings.
