Bug Description

On the CD boot menu please change "Try kubuntu without installing" and "Install kubuntu" to "Start Kubuntu"

there should be a blank space below "Start Kubuntu" to separate it from the other less important options.

No language selection is needed in the CD boot menu, it is obvious which menu option to run even if you don't speak English

It should boot into the X session with the Ubiquity dialogue offering selection between running the live session and doing an install. Code for this is already in the KDE frontend of Ubiquity.

I've broken out the request for a blank space to bug 623265, since that's more difficult than the other changes and I don't think I'll have time for it right away.

"^Start Kubuntu" label is localized and translated into Spanish since 2010-08-24:

However, the menu item still shows untranslated in 10.10 when the user selects other language than English.

I've submitted bug #666716 to track this issue.
