Network menu entry is confusing (Xubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xfce4-panel-menu-plugin

"Network" is a bad name for a menu. Many users don't know what it means, or if they do, are scared by it. I'd suggest "Internet" instead.

KDE and GNOME use "Internet" so I guess we should use this too...

The bug is already filed upstream, nothing more to do about that.
Until it is properly fixed, I'll change that in xubuntu-default-settings only.
