Absolutely fine with me.  Launch achieves the same thing - as long as it's
consistant.  I cannot stress enough the importance of the "Start" button in
Windows when doing support, especially over the phone, email, IM or through
FAQs.  You can always begin by having the user click start and then they can
get to anything.  A consistant "Launch" button in GNOME with a changable
icon would be most excellent.  A power user could remove it or hide the
text, but most others will not.
