The labels for computers in the UI are very short (7 characters plus 3 dots). In corporate environments naming conventions may mean that computers are indistinguishable. I suggest the following improvements:

  1. Allow the user to enter a custom nickname of 10 characters.
  2. Display the full name in a pop-up when hovering over.
  3. Have different icons or colours for different operating systems and an indicator showing which is the current master.

All good suggestions. In fact, given Mac typical naming schemes and potential DNS namespace collisions (e.g. DNS.domain.one, DNS.domain.two), 20 characters might be even better.
