In order for me to access my 'Home' currently in Unity, I have to click on 'Deleted Items' and then the 'Home' button which is situated in the toolbar on the Nautilus window. It would be quite convenient having a 'Home' icon on Unity's launcher for quick access to the users common folders.

As documented in the the blueprint the default items in the launcher for 11.04 will be:

  • nautilus on both cases
  • firefox
  • tomboy
  • ubuntu one

The "nautilus" will be a shortcut to your home folder. The "both cases" means it will be there whether you're on a netbook or a normal desktop.
