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


@Gunnar. When the status is set to Opinion this bug drops off the list
of ubuntu-docs bugs. I think the bug is worth keeping in mind. Can we
set the status so that it stays on the list? Personally I'd set status =
Triaged, importance = Low.

If I update a page for other reasons I may as well make the correction.
For example, I need to update disk-format.page and I notice that disk-
format.page manages to use "USB memory stick" and "USB flash drive".

  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":
