Ah well... that's an argument for "Places" then, since it is already 
translated in kickoff I believe.

It's not such the frivolous subject you'd make it seem.

Treating users like predictable children who "need to feel at home" is not a 
good policy. Many people ran away from known proprietary platform for 
precisely that reason : they didn't appreciate to be forcibly nursed.

As for the "usability testing", well, yes you can say that indeed. It's been 
"tested" for many years to the point of being utterly old fashioned today.
