We have plenty of 24/7 production linux workstations at my job and let me say that casual users really only want to click on a easy to understand icon... The extension/security is something that our users really dont want to get involved with... they only want to get their job done.
I don't get coments like:
The ability for a program to present any icon to the user IS definitely a problem;
The ability for a user to use a program is to activate it in an easy manner... and this is, by far has I know, almost everytime represented by an icon on a GUI... unless we go back to a console using vim?
