thanks for the feedback.
the reason they are not aligned is because we made a mistake in the first board that we carried on because of compatibility with the "shield" extensions.
changing it might require quite a bit of extra documentation
but it's something we should consider for the next batch of 10000 we are making now..
As far as names are concerned I tend to prefer italian names because Arduino was born in italy (the board... also the king but it's another story..) and it's still manufactured in Ivrea.
In a globalised world where everything tends to become the same it's nice not to use an english name for arduino:)
btw NG means Nuova Generazione
