That is damn good point as well.
When a user wants to explore further than the outer shell of the OS, he/she 
will get confused when using the shell and finding out his links aren't working
as he/she expects them to work from his/her GUI experience.

Hmm, I think I need to reread the previous discussion why the change was reverted.
Was the only argument because it is the way it works as such under other OS's??
