Description Matt Anderson 2006-02-03 12:28:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060202 Fedora/ Firefox/

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
