Amen. Hopefully some day we'll be able to escape the "desktop" metaphor
with something more useful; nemo-like or OLPC journal-like.
We already can: use the maximize button. On my main laptop every
top-level window is always maximized, with the exception of Nautilus and
terminal windows. In fact I often go months without seeing my desktop.
It doesn't even matter how messy it is! Except that I just cleaned it up
halfway through writing this message.
