Can you add/remove the MS calculator? And if so do you do it by just
selecting "calculator"
In the case of Epiphany in Fedora, when a home desktop user goes to
add/remove "Web Browser" (Epiphany) after they have discovered Firefox
and no longer care to use Epiphany, they have to know the brandname to
be be able to uninstall it or reinstall it. Is there a plan in the
works to make the concept of generic name for the default applications
map over as useful concepts for the software install/removal
operations? As much as seeing the name change will confuse people who
install a second web browser. It will be much more confusing if they
decided they don't need the default browser anymore and the add/remove
software tools don't understand the concept of generic name as seen in
the menus.
