    The only thing I have on my desktop with Point Linux is my home folder and the trash can and of course removable media shows up there when I plug a USB in or put a CD/DVD in the drive. Other then that it's just nice to be able to create a quick folder to stick stuff in when I'm on the net without having to open my home folder. Also when I need to delete something I don't need to open my home folder to get to the trash can since it's right on the desktop where I can get to it easily.
    I've just found that Point Linux is a comfortable fit for me with the MATE desktop and the way it works. That's the great thing about Linux, if you look around you can find a Distro that'll work just like you want it to or with a little tweaking you can make it so. That's why I love Linux.

    I totally get it. I used to create quick folders all of the time that way. About the trash though, you can put that on the dock so it's easier to access. I don't drag anything to the trash anymore, I just right click and trash it, then empty it later.

    I'll have to take a look at Point Linux. I'm not familair with it. Glad you found your perfect setup!

I can actually do stuff on the desktop and it's still rock solid Debian 7 based.
    I'm not suprised as Debian uses Gnome 3 by default and Elementary is a different shell for Gnome 3 which is how Cinnamon started. I do wonder if the Elementary guys will have the same problem as the Mint guys with each release of Gnome 3 breaking backward compatibility.

    With the 2.0 release, Cinnamon uses none of the Gnome code base so maybe Elementary will end up doing the same thing; if they haven't already.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
