Description of problem:
The "Create Terminal" option was removed in 2.12 because the developers think non-powerusers are afraid of the command line.
All they did was create a usability problem for the user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right Click on the dekstop
2. Notice there is no longer an entry for "Create Terminal"
Actual Results: 1. You get frustrated.
2. You move your mouse all the way to which ever Gnome Panel you have your Terminal icon on and click that.
Expected Results: The "Create Terminal" menu item should be there.
Gnome has a poor track record when it comes to usability. This bug has been seen in the latest version of Ubuntu, don't let it happen to Fedora as well.
