[Bug 1651233] Re: Inconsistent terminology for USB flash drive


Assuming that the terminology is inconsistent 'upstream' (GNOME Help)
too, I don't think we should change it in Ubuntu only. If it's important
enough (not sure), we might point it out to the maintainers of GNOME
Help, and if they change it we can do so later.

  Inconsistent terminology for USB flash drive

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In the desktop help (development version - and very likely 16.10 too)
  the terminology for USB flash drive is inconsistent. For example:

  disk-format.html refers to "USB memory stick"
  files-share.html refers to "USB flash drive"
  backup-where.html refers to "USB memory key"
  backup-why.html refers to "USB drive"

  This is confusing for users. I suggest we use just the most common
  term ("USB flash drive"?) and not give any of the synonyms.

  Wikipedia seems to favour "USB flash drive":
