[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:
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":
