On a note as far as using text... What's wrong with having text? As
long as it's something that can change according to ones language. I'm
sure there is something in the HIG that will tell me, but I can't find
how that pertains to a "start" button.
Because icons and graphics don't change with your language, only with
your icon theme. Plus, remaking a logo for every language out there
would be insane.
If we want text, that's great, but we need to get GNOME (and KDE, if
needed) to support a real text label in the main menu icon. Then it can
be localized/internationalized just like any other text.
I do think calling it fedora or something cryptic like that wouldn't be
I can, and don't mind simply posting ideas to the list, but didn't want
to clog things up.
