I'll argue this is *our* problem. The Fedora Desktop is not just a bunch
of packages thrown together, it is supposed to be more than that: have
consistency and a vision behind it.
As a long time GIMP user, with my memory muscle trained to find it in
the menu, it was a pain for me (and I sill have not recovered
completely) to launch it, I still look for The Gimp and see GNU something.
Here is how the Graphics menu looks on my F8 desktop:
GNU Image Manipulation Program
gThumb Image Viewer
Inkscape Vector Graphics Editor
Quite inconsistent, but if I would try to apply some logic, it would
look like the application name is "GNU" and the description is "Image

I'd prefer to have the long names in menu, consistently... I believe GNU
Image Manipulation Program is saner to have in menu then GIMP, but when
it changed it also gave me lot of pain and to see it changing again...
well... I got used to find this one by icon recently...
BUT, I believe, isn't the GNU Image Manipulation Program the official
long name for GIMP?
And yeah, a lot of windows users use gimp, but on the other side a lot
of linux users don't know about gimp. Therefore I think it's better to
use the long version - it actually tells what the program does and users
already familiar with gimp either know the long counterpart or are able
to find it looking at the icons...
