Admittedly, while I actually know about at, in the four times I have
needed functionality like that I just did "sleep 1800; poweroff" or
something similar. For other reminders most people I know use
calendars or tea timers these days, so I agree that the user base on a
desktop is negligible. I see some more use cases on a server, and my
gut feeling is to keep it on those.

+1 from me for removing it from desktop.
