That's a change (even if it's a long ago change).  In my day-to-day travels, setting up a completely new machine for a client only happens once every few years, so I tend t, forget what I see as default system names.  It also doesn't help, I suppose, that I always change them to something meaningful so that when they show up on a list of network connected devices, even on a different device, it's pretty obvious which device is which.

And you'd think that MS would do some "hardware type detection" when setting these default names, but . . .
