Indeed. +1 to everything Derek said.

I came to Drupal from a background in science, taxonomy was not a scary word 
at all - and yet I *still* had to play with taxonomy, to try to use it 
before I had that *ping!* lightbulb moment of how to use it and how great it 

I don't think the word 'taxonomy' is what confuses people, I think it's the 
underlying concepts.

PS IIRC We switched to 'Categories' in the menu at the time Moveable Type 
became a paid-for service...
