I have a few comments. The product name is ReactOS. Not Reactos. Not ROS.
Why do we need both "Turn Off..." and "Terminate ROS Explorer"? Does
"Terminate ROS Explorer" go to the console? If so, then why not call it
"Go to console" instead? Yes, I don't run ReactOS much - shame on me ;-)
... are usually used when there isn't enough space left to write what you
want to write. There is lots of space here to write "Log Off User" and
"Turn Off Computer".

How does this work? 
 I can't find anything in the wiki about this and it seems a bit of a grey area. 
There has been quite a bit of discussion about the UI recently, and I've had a few people asking me how they can get involved, as
they are finding it difficult to get their ideas accepted.
Two good designs that spring to mind are that of crappish and Dominic. 
Due to the recent interest in the GUI, I would be relatively interested in getting some of their ideas into ReactOS. 
I know Alex has some thoughts on improvements for 0.3 also 
For instance, I think the button icon and menu graphic Dominic did are much fresher and easier on the eye (see attached  ... the
graphic text needs tweaking). However I don't know whether I can just commit, whether there is a vote, whether MindFlyer can
overrule us, etc.
Can we set some rules down so no toes are stepped on.
