Bug Description

Since the netbook remix interface replaces the normal desktop, there should be a shortcut to the desktop folder on the right side in the remix interface. It's easy enough to create this link. Just navigate to the Desktop folder in nautilus and Add Bookmark. But I think this bookmark should be a default.

Another aspect of this is that the default download directory for firefox is the Desktop. It seems like that should be different if remix isn't going to have a shortcut to the Desktop folder.

This touches on a larger problem on how we deal with the desktop. Marking as confirmed because we need to choose one of the options:

1. Change apps to use another directory for downloads etc
2. Add a shortcut to the desktop from the launcher and leave things as they are
3. Enable desktop-is-home in nautilus.

moving to Ubuntu-distribution. I'm leaving this without a component for now, pending the decision from njpatel's comment
