I'm a long time Fedora server user and have recently been testing out Fedora 16. I'm using the GNOME desktop and now that I finally got wireless working, I'm curious about the following:

Are there app launcher alternatives? I come from Windows, and it would be nice to see something similar to that or the new Ubuntu look.

Is there a point to the desktop? I can't seem to put files on it or anything.
