There has been much discussion on desktop icons in 4.x. So I have decided to poll the community.

Keep in mind that DSL does not normally run on systems with 1280x1024 resolution.
In fact many system have very limited screen size. I would have to say that desktop icons must fit at least on a 640x480 screen.

If you select option 3, please post your recommended additional desktop icons in a reply post.

Most of my DSL use is on a monitor with 800x600 resolution and a few 32x32 icons take up plenty space already. Keep it clean. The most commonly used icons are already in the tray by default. There's also already a menu. How many apps do people open with icons before resorting to the menu anyway? Or are there really people who minimize everything so they can find an icon to launch things?

When I first got DSL 3.2, one of the first things I did was cut down the icons to 8..

I say use only 2 icons: Home folder, FF
