   Name it what you like,,,edit it so it has the menus and apps you
want where you want, why do you want a hard and fast standard, this is
linux not windows. Call it menu, call it applications , call it stuff
whatever you like, seriously people learn to make your desktop behave
and look how you want. There are not quite the customisation options as
with kde or gnome, but you sacrifice those to get a lean fast system.
This argument discussion over what to call the menu button just
has me beat if you don't like it called applications ...change it ,
take charge of your own machine.
