I'm agnostic, but I thought the 'Apps' name was justified because
all[1] applications had the extension '.app' - so when you bought
or downloaded FOO.app, you would drag it to your Apps directory,
this may be clearer than dragging to 'Applications'.  

I have been using MacOS X for over a year at home, and I've got
used to 'Applications' now.  Mind you, I've got used to RHS scrollers,
and I still hate them...



[1] OK, not all, but all apps bundled inside a directory rather than crammed
into a single Mach-O file.
