Too sad, but expected also....

I guess that sounds quite better, simply because usually when people (I
atleast) click on the desktop, they want to do the things related to desktop
per se, like the ones you put on the lauchers "Desktop" menu. Not opening
programs etc, as the most used ones should already be on desktop.

And, at least but not at last, is consistent with other desktops also, as
far as I can remember.
