Okay, I was only referring to the Places section, not the entire panel. I do think changing the default label of `Root`'s mounted device would prevent the confusion of the one user who wanted it removed from Devices. But that was only one of many criticisms of this change. I think the most emotional responses consider this change to be condescending. Painting `/` as "too dangerous" for the typical user, even though Dolphin already has restrictions that make system damage through the Dolphin GUI impossible. Removing the quick and easy Places link and relying on users to locate `Root` among their mounted physical devices gives the impression that we don't `/` to be easily accessible through Dolphin at all, even if people can't do anything once they get there. I have an additional concern that this level of obfuscation could have the unintended effect of making things more confusing for truly novice users, who may not realize there is a directory structure beyond `Home` at all. This can create many problems when trying to understand what the system is doing, or when troubleshooting problems.
