Heh, this was not on my mind when I thought of the wording, but
whatever floats people's boats....

Your point about translation is excellent.  For non-English speakers,
the meaning of "Fire it up" as intended is similar to "start the
engines," and in this case the engine is a nuclear furnace of software
freedom! :-)  So something that captures that aspect is probably the
right way to go for translation.
