Desktop Alias No Go
Authored by: ryangreenberg on Jul 23, '03 01:57:03PM

I thought that you might be able to get a similar effect by deleting the Desktop folder in my home directory and creating a symbolic link. The immediate effect is that you cannot drag anything to the desktop. I don't know what other ramifications this has, but this is an interesting tidbit. I reversed the situation by deleting the alias, creating a folder named "Desktop," and logging out.

-- And for all the whiners in these comments, "your kind" was clearly a reference to nitpicky, compulsive organization people. Lay off the flaming.

Desktop Alias No Go
Authored by: pmbuko on Jul 23, '03 02:21:51PM

as a matter of fact, the "your kind" comment was directed at people who are NOT compulsively organized, and anally-retentive.

To paraphrase:

Those of you who don't understand or care about why one would want to have an extremely clean desktop -- move along.
