How can I use my Home as the Desktop directory in Yosemite? Deleting the Desktop directory doesn't work after a restart. I would like to do this because I don't like to switch to Desktop dir everytime I take to Terminal and would like to see all my dirs on the "Desktop" screen.
Also please address the permissions aspect of any solution. Since I notice that some of the OSX created directories in my Home have this permission: "drwx------+" I worry that fixing my issue will have ramifications for permissions.
Can I have what I want with the permissions Apple has set?
