Well, as you point out there's a lot of crap in $HOME that has to be
there. I'd rather not have these folders on my Desktop, as I like my
desktop to be rather empty and only have really important things on it.
I think I look in ~/evolution once a year, so I don't want it on my
Desktop but I can't remove it without bad things happening.

I wouldn't have any problems with the desktop being something like
~/Desktop. Plus I think most windows people can handle this as the
Desktop in windows is c:\windows\Profiles\iain\Desktop (or
c:\windows\Desktop if there's no user setup)

Ah, I don't even want to see them on the desktop in hacker mode :)

Would that not be useful :)

easier to see"

Yeah, Nautilus made me do that too. I think I've got like 10 directories
in my $HOME now.
