"Installation Complete" message text contains reference to Ubuntu rather than using the current distro name

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

When Ubiquity is finished installing, it presents a message indicating that "Installation is Complete." The text in this message reads:

"Installation has finished. You can continue testing Ubuntu now, but until you restart the computer, any changes you make or documents you save will not be preserved"

This hard-coded reference to Ubuntu is unnecessary, and requires downstream distros to create a package fork in order to use the installer in their distro.

Instead of stating "Ubuntu" specifically, this text should display the distro name in /cdrom/.disk/info or the /etc/lsb-release file, as all other text in the installer does.

I am not sure this is a bug but since it is reproducible I am going to mark it confirmed.

Thanks for reporting this bug and any supporting documentation. Since this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work, I'm going to mark it as confirmed and let them handle it from here. Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!

Changed in ubiquity (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

This is still happening as of Lucid. Any chance of it being fixed for Maverick?
