Well, if I am looking onto my desk at home it is the same. Papers, books 
a calculator, some pens and a ruler. If I have finished work, I have to 
put the books back and the documents too. So it's real life. :)

Full ack! My pens and ruler are on the top of my desk. If I am writing 
something and left the pen near my pad and opening a book, which I take 
over the pad, because space is finite, I sometimes searching the pen. So 
I have to say, apps shouldn't be on the "desktop". ;)
