That's not what I need: I need shortcuts to applications (and possibly 
 documents) _on the desktop_ - not accessed via some menu one has to 
 pop up before.

Myself, I have no problem with that (the configurability and 
 don't-get-in-my-way-with-anything is why I use Enlightenment), but this 
 is for the SO, where I want to make the transition from Windos/Gnome as 
 easy as possible.

So far, Rox looks the most promising, so I'll try and figure out what 
 packages I need for that.

Thanks all!
