Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2022-05-24 09:57:33 CEST
Currently, our launcher labels itself as "ThinLinc Client" on all platforms. Although this is technically correct, it looks a bit out of place with such a long and descriptive name. Most other things just have the distinctive portion, e.g. "Spotify", "Slack", "Firefox", etc.

Admittedly, "ThinLinc" is the name of both the client and the server. But most end users will only ever interact with the client. And they may not even see the distinction of server and client, rather seeing "ThinLinc" as the system as a whole.

So I think we should drop the "client" portion from most (all?) of our end user facing stuff. It should only be included where there is a clear risk of separating it from the server, or other components.
