We would prefer to keep the desktop clear, as it is now, and present this
type of information through the panels.

About Ubuntu, of course, will continue to have its own menu item under the
System menu.  I think that the best place for the FAQ Guide and Quick Guide
is to put them at the very front page in Yelp, so that the user sees them
when they click on the help icon, since these documents will generally be
the most relevant to new users.
