Funny thing is that some people have asked the Ubuntu dialog to be
replaced by the one used in SLED 10 SP1. :) 
Sorry, but the current logout/shutdown/whatever dialog in Ubuntu is
quite bad and mostly just a copy of the one used in WinXP, but with some
more crack added. These actions can and must be designed in a better
way, putting some shiny graphics there won't do much help.
Some interesting reading on the subject can be found by Joel , Moishe
 and Arno 
Regarding the symbols used in the Ubuntu I find most, if not all of them
a bit weird. The button used for hibernate looks the same as the one I
press when I start my Dell laptop in the morning. Ubuntu's sleep symbol
looks the same, but use another color.
I therefore find it a bit confusing when the words and symbols used
conflict. What do I trust, the symbol or the verb?
