Re-naming the programs : I do it too

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on July 07, 2006 11:09 PM
In reguards to naming programs I do the same thing under Windows when I fix somebody's computer. FireFox is renamed "Internet", Opera is renamed "Explorer" and set to ID as IE, Thunderbird gets renamed "Email", QCD gets renamed "Music Player", and Nero gets renamed "CD-Burner".

Internet Explorer is removed from the screen and the identifying registery text is changed to "DO NOT USE". Same thing with Outlook Express.

I started renaming the program tags just so people could have an easier time identifying the programs to use, and I know I'm not the only tech that does this.

Nice to see Xandros doing it as well, who wants to bet Microsoft will do it with Vista?
