ACS: Improve user experience by using better button texts

When the user get's an error message that needs to be confirmed try to provide the dialog in such a way that the user does not need to read the error message but can infer the action from the button text. See attachments.

    I admit that I sometimes get thrown off by those dialogs. I think these two dialogs actually are worded correctly, but I am not reading the text above the buttons before I click. I'm expecting a "Do you really want to exit?" dialog instead of "Do you want to save changes to the script?", so I click Yes.

    I think that if IBM pursues this idea, they would need to change the dialogs' text, since they are currently asking yes/no questions. I really dislike dialogs that offer buttons that don't match the question asked, i.e., "Do you want to blah-blah-blah?" and offer buttons "OK" and "Cancel".

    I think this is a great idea and seems like it would be easy to implement.
