Perhaps one of the things that might confuse some users (especially uninformed users) is that Magento has been rebranded to Adobe Commerce, making a name discrepancy with this site's name.

Magento Is Now Adobe Commerce

We are excited to announce that Adobe’s acquisition of Magento is complete and Magento Commerce is now an Adobe company – part of Adobe Commerce.

Although, Adobe also still provides references to the original name in many places: Magento, now Adobe Commerce.
