I really like what you did there! Here's what it makes me think: we've seen
some push-buttons lately and they have a sort of gradient-driven, smooth
motion to them which I definitely see in your icon. Could we make a
pushbutton that definitely says Ubuntu? If you could download the sources to
one of SebastianPorta's pushbuttons and integrate the one you came up with
here, I think it would fit quite well with the rest of the set and say "push
me" while still saying "Ubuntu".
