Is the {{windows-stub}} only for Microsoft developed programs such as Visual Studio or all programs run on Windows? At the moment, the stub text says, " This Microsoft Windows article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it." It's kind of ambiguous. If it's the latter, then it should say Microsoft Windows application article, or something like that. Comments?

In my opinion, {{windows-stub}} should only apply to articles that cover Windows itself, i.e. technologies, future product versions, built-in applications, history, and so forth. The more generic {{software-stub}} is more accurate for any software product that is not a part of Windows itself. Warrens 01:13, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
If it is restricted to Windows only, might it then make sense to broaden it a bit to {{Microsoft-software-stub}}, so that things like Microsoft Office Project Server and Microsoft Passport Network (which are already marked with {{windows-stub}}) can fit in the category? That's a bit contrary to {{linux-stub}}, and perhaps wouldn't work for very many other companies, but it still seems like something people are doing already. --Interiot 02:08, 15 January 2006 (UTC)


I have proposed to add a stub type for operating system stubs---{{OS-stub}}---as a sub type under the present one. See [[WP:WSS/P#{{OS-stub}}]] for the rationale behind the proposal. --Wernher 04:57, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Hidden category?[edit]

Why is there a hidden category banner at the top of the category page? Why should this cat be hidden? Just wondering. Her Pegship (talk) 17:29, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
