I concur. It's *their* rules if we're describing Windows OSes and apps. In
relation to documenting web-based apps, I think I'd still follow their lead
(M$) given the predominance of Windows machines running the browser. This
presumes that the user(s) is already somewhat indoctrinated to the M$ way
and its terminology (although I wouldn't place any bets on this).
