Use Files as launcher name (749 bytes, patch)

Description William Jon McCann 2011-02-02 15:56:20 UTC
The name of the current launcher is "File Manager" which isn't very nice because it doesn't really manage files.  I'd like to avoid using the term manager for things that only allow me to "manage" things.  Really it allows access and organization more than it manages.

It is also a bit long for a name.  Ideally names of core utilities are short and snappy.

I recommend using "Files" as the launcher name.  It is short and to the point.  When I click it I get my files.
