• bulleted lists

    Refer to this article from NN/g on presenting bulleted lists.

  • Debian and Ubuntu versions

    Refer to Debian and Ubuntu versions primarily by their numbers, and additionally by their codenames.

    • For example:
      • Tails 3.0 is based on Debian 9 (Stretch)
      • Tails Installer is available on Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) or later.

  • digit grouping

    Use a non-breaking thin space (HTML entity:  ) or a space to separate groups of three digits.

    • For example:
      • $50 000

    See Decimal separator#Digit grouping and ISO 31-0#Numbers.

  • Files, Disks, etc.

    To refer to GNOME applications:

    • Use their short name as it appears in the menus when giving instructions to be executed inside Tails.

      For example:

      • Open /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/dotfiles in Files.
    • Prepend "GNOME" when giving instructions to be executed outside of Tails.

      For example:

      • Install GNOME Disks in Debian.
  • graphics card

    And not graphics adapters, graphics, graphical hardware, or video card.

  • network interface, Wi-Fi interface

    And not card, device, or adapter.

    Still, USB Wi-Fi adapters are USB dongles that provide a Wi-Fi interface.

  • persistence feature

    To refer to the features available in the configuration of the persistent volume.

    • For example: when the Additional Software persistence feature is activated.

    The word persistence can be omitted if it is redundant from the context (for example on configure).

  • serial comma

    Place a serial comma immediately before the coordinating conjunction (usually and or or) in a series of three or more terms.

  • startup options

    To refer to the kernel command line options that can be specified from the Boot Loader Menu.

  • Tails Greeter

    Without an article. Not the Greeter. Note the formatting as an application.
