I think it conveyed well enough by having logged into a personal profile that 
uses $HOME.

Some people are like me and need none of those as a menu item. We know what 
app opens the kind of file we want to deal with, and so open the app, and use 
its file picker to choose what to work with.

Speaking of which, from shows the ancient file 
picker that is the reason I still use OS/2 more than anything else for 
routine chores. Most recent dir, most recent file, and most common dir are 
the bare minimum acceptable to me for any systemwide file picker. The time I 
waste getting the same file reloaded or into another app, or a sibling file 
loaded, on anything other than OS/2 is gigantic compared to OS/2. I thought I 
filed a KDE bug about this a very long time ago, but can't seem to find it 
now. Maybe I did on Mandriva or Novell's trackers.
