I also rename the apps on users' desktops. I have a few accounts on my home machine for people who are mostly Windows users. To make their first steps into Linux a tad easier, I change gaim to Messenger Chat, Firefox to Web Browser, xmms to Music Player. Basically, I change the names from nouns to verbs. The handful of people I've introduced to Linux this way find it easier to find a tool named after what they want to do, rather than remember a name.
