      Description

      Below is a sample output from mender setup:

      # mender setup
      
      Mender Client Setup
      ===================
      
      Setting up the Mender client: The client will regularly poll the server to check for updates and report its inventory data.
      Get started by first configuring the device type and settings for communicating with the server.
      
      The device type property is used to determine which Mender Artifact are compatible with this device.
      Enter a name for the device type (e.g. raspberrypi3-raspbian): [raspberrypi3-raspbian] 
      
      Are you connecting this device to hosted.mender.io? [Y/n] Y
      Enter your credentials for hosted.mender.io
      Email: user@example.com
      Password: 
      
      Demo mode uses short poll intervals and assumes the default demo server setup. (Recommended for testing.)
      Do you want to run the client in demo mode? [Y/n] Y
      Mender setup successfully.
      

      The default device type is raspberrypi3-raspbian, however the device type for the prebuilt Raspbian image we have is "raspberrypi3". It would be easier if those are aligned.

      Would propose to change the above default device type string from "raspberrypi3-raspbian" to "raspberrypi3".
