What if there was simply the name Xubuntu on the button, or maybe the
Xubuntu logo? No translation required. On the other hand people have
been clicking on a 'Start' button (translated) for over 10 years on
Windows so the idea of looking for a rectangular shaped button to
access applications isn't exactly a novel idea.
