My personal preference would be an empty desktop. The first thing I did in previous versions was remove the folderview.

fwiw, the options there were essentially as I posed it here
1. stick with empty desktop, no widgets (upstream default)
2. revert back to pre kde-4.7 setup, with folderview widget
3. (kevin's favorite. :) ) use folderview *layout*, full screen, aka like kde3 times.
