it's not my own position but it's required by the GNome HIG (Human
Interface Guideline)

IMHO It's not a noobyfication, it's a convenient choose :
1. I prefer that person refers to a function rather than a name, when
they deals with applications. Such of things give the problem that on
Windows world, people know and know to use Excel, but not spreadsheet
in general.

2. Imagine you're a Gnome first time runner; if in the menu there only
entries like Rhythmbox, Xchat, how do you know what the kind of
software is it ? You're obliged to launch all the application to see
that rhythmbox is a musi player, and so on.

I'll hope you'll understand my thoughs as my english is far from perfect.
