No no, as you've quoted me above: I agree to rename.

Ok, thanks. We will propose to DolfjeBot.

Good. (Reminder to readers: Neo FreeRunner Hardware, Neo 1973 Hardware, 
GTA03 and GTA04 categories will go there. I'll do this change now, it's 
so logical that I don't think we need more votes.)

Sorry, I am confused.

Hardware -> Phone model? Isn't Hardware going to renamed to Function or 
Functional subsystems??!

Functional subsystems (with *s I think) is ok, but I don't think 
applications' container should be called "Application category", or that 
anything should be called "Phone model". (That's not clarifying 
anything, especially seeing the so many announcements about CAD files, 
which are also models.)

The word "Phones" (but that's not the Hardware's new name, that's the 
Hardware Support's new name, I think there are some bugs in your list 
Minh)... so, the word "Phones" clearly identifies that the phones are in 
that.  (may be my lacking English knowledge again, I am sorry if that's 
  sometimes blocking very nice English word usage. :-) )

Maybe "Subsystems" could be used instead Functional Subsystem even. 
Well, we could simply leave it Hardware for a few days more, I don't 
care how we call this top level category currently, more important is 
that the underlying structure is clear and that WHAT are the top level 
categories and WHATS IN THEM is now clear.

Will we mix hardware and software subsystems in subsystems? Software 
subsystems are currently in System Developers and/or Application Developers.
