Is it in my face?  Is it any the average user's face?  I have my
browser opened all the time, usually taking up significant
real-estate. The same goes for all my family members regardless of
operating system. The desktop is really never 'seen' and if anything
is just a dumping ground for unsorted files that get
downloaded/uploaded from other sources (net or removable media.)

Panel real-estate on the other hand is a premium, having unhidable
partitions in the disk mounter applet makes that particular panel
applet cumbersome to use effectively when you have several mountable
partitions.

via a context menu from the Places menu itself and is required to
either interact with the file manager icons or use the diskmounter
panel applet to unmount a device. Not being able to unmount from
Places makes it harder to avoid needing to use the 'Desktop'
meme."spaleta
