I am the one to blame for this, and I do apologize for any inconvenience
that his may have caused, but as you correctly stated that's because the
system language were they were taken from was Portuguese.
The word 'Sex' in the screenshots stands for Sexta-feira, which is the
Portuguese translation for Friday.

And even though I agree with you, considering Xubuntu a pretty damn sexy
OS, it's something that needs to be fixed.
As Elizabeth explained, after the 17th of April, date of Trusty Thar
release, we'll make new screenshots (this time in English installation)
 and the all thing will be resolved.
