Microsoft refers to their standard command line interface as 'Command Prompt', yet our tag for it calls it by it's filename, .

It's also inconsistent with how we have other CLIs and shells named, which use their correct names (such as , , etc). I suggest be renamed to *

*I would suggest by itself, however I feel this would be abused as a catch-all for any command prompt application. Thus for our own sanity's sake we should stick 'windows' in front of it.
