Agreed to keep the Desktop clear as possible. However, it is common to have a 
distro icon on the desktop. In SuSE we have the SuSE icon. Which opens in a 
frameless screen with a list of most important things and places. From there 
you can click though. Some links start  apps like YaST online update others 
click though in the default browser. When SuSE is started for the first time 
this screen is displayed. The user can  to disable it for next logon. In 
addition I think that having an ubuntu icon on the desktop will add the 
brand. I am not sure how they developed this.

With regard to FAQ and Quick Guide. Somebody who know Yelp needs to do it. We 
don't seem to know how it can be done.
