Re: `New' sub-menu in desktop's rightclick-menu

In nautilus 2.2 i'm going to propose to change the new items. 

First i think having new window, new terminal new folder etc. is

what i would like is 

create => folder
       => application launcher
       => symlink (perhaps)

Also i think create => launcher should be available in the file manager
view not just the desktop.

Since these are things the user creates, they weren't there before

I'm considering proposing that we remove new window, but i'm not sure if
thats a good thing or not, i want to talk to more trained usability
people about that. Also i think new terminal in the desktop context menu
is crack rot, since nautilus is supposed to be a desktop shell, hence a
replacement for the text shell.

Another thing there is a good chance that in 2.0.1 gnome-terminal will
be one of the option in the open with menu for folders (as an
application) i think this makes new terminal obsolete when

no need to file a bug please see bug 77292 and add comments there.
