Comment 8 for bug 681348

I agree with the need of a "Show desktop / Minimize all" button : icon.

I know there has been discussions on change or not desktop behavior, ie keeping it like now as a folder, or just allow background + widgets showing.

Personally, I use very often desktop as a folder to save the files I need only temporary or that I use just right now (before saving them in another folder, like my desktop in rela life, where documents and papers I need are there). Desktop is my default download folder of Firefox, I copy files from USB devices here etc...

So I miss a lot the "Show desktop" panel button which allowed me to get desktop in one click.

Perhaps it's possible to have as option a dock icon with same behavior (Minimize all windows / show desktop).
