RE: [Nautilus-list] "start here"

I think that you have a good idea here.  The whole "Start Here" concept was
suggested by Havoc a while ago, and discussed at length.  I think it is a
really good idea to help novices, and make one's desktop more convenient.  A
larger, more obvious icon on the desktop might be nice.  A very slow,
occasional pulse might be cool, but we'd have to test it out to see if it
would end up just being obnoxious.

That said, I think it would be cool if the panel had a "show desktop" type
icon, similar to windows.  I used to think that such an icon was silly, but
then once I started using my desktop more for documents and such rather than
a place to launch applications, it became much more useful.
