I always thought it was one of those 'Linux for Newbies' things. To make
things easier for them when they start out and not to scare them off with a
bunch of strange names.

IE: I want to open a document so "Document Viewer" sounds right. As opposed
to gedit or kedit or vim or many others. Or Web Browser. Or Email. And not
the actual name of the applications.

And if the Fedora folks found something better they would not have to edit
all of the menu entry titles.

However. I also edit my menus. I deselect things that I don't use and change
the listings to suit my wants and wishes.
