I don't find "launch" offensive.. or taskbar. I guess I generally write for
users that understand those types of terms. Certain terms that may be
considered jargon are actually becoming more like conventions and people are
fairly used to that. I make it a practice to not assume that my readers are
idiots or anything. As long as you define terms and use them consistently I
think it's okay. Bottom line, write for the audience.
