GNOME Control Center to probably be renamed to Ubuntu Control Center in Ubuntu 12.10
It seems that Quantal will probably introduce exciting new features, approach that is suitable for a release after the LTS, where stability was a focus much more important than new features.
According to a UDS-Q session, GNOME Control Center is to probably be renamed to Ubuntu Control Center, change that, although not entirely new (the developers patched the GNOME Control Center in Precise, etc), is to be a patched version or a fork.
The change is to probably be more relevant in terms of an easy maintenance and faster development, nevertheless its user-visible name (System Settings) will probably remain the same.
An interesting fact is how the design team will handle the new "branding".
