So I was drinking to get totally rid of Desktop. That's right: drinking.
And the reason I am taking the liberty to share my extend of an idea on this forum is because, according to MATE Tweak, I am not the only person feeling that way about the desktop.
Putting things into perspective: I am one of those users who will automatically head under MATE Tweak and uncheck the "Show Desktop Icons" immediately after any installation is done.
"But why leave it at that?" I asked myself one day. If I really want to get rid of Desktop why should ~/Desktop remain as a active folder?
So here I am asking if it c/would make sense to enhance MATE Tweak by 1 notch and allowing it to TOTALLY disable Desktop alongside it's folders so it just stays as a background image for those, like me, who have no real use for a desktop aside from building it up a bunch of temporary icons which simply adds clutter in the end?
Food for thought but I think if anyone, Ubuntu MATE would be ready for such drastic move.
What do you think?
(Of course, for now, I will just rmdir ~/Desktop but, just like editing the sudoer file without using
visudo I can do it manually and I think it will give the same result but as I lack solid intimate understandings of how everything works under the hood I could surely be wrong...)
