I was not getting upset. I was replying in the fashion that casuto used.

However, I still think the whole issue is really silly. Nothing on my desktop should effect the system or the other users, Period.

As to other commentors saying that it is a good thing to be able to have one thing install on everyones desktop. Yes, that is handy. However, there is no reason that user x cannot delete that icon or rename it without admin rights Maybe that user never uses whatever it links to.

The desktop is just the desktop, a picture of what resources you can use. The system owns the resource, the user should own links to the resource.

I'm a teacher and I want my students don't delete icons, links, files I prepared for them. And so *all users" files in the desktop accomplish this.
