Package: nautilus
Version: 3.4.2-1+build1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

You should be able to create and access files and folders on the desktop by
default. I know it is in an option in in gnome-tweak-tool, but it is both
wasteful of space and unintuitive, as you have most of the screen when you
startup doing nothing, and when you save a file on the desktop, it is not shown
on the desktop.
