    It's buggy, often it's not possible to empty the trash.
    Drag & drop between the desktop and applications doesn't work, at least not consistently. This includes Nautilus windows.
    Mounted volumes (USB etc.) don't appear on the desktop.

    NB: this is all in Wayland sessions. Maybe it behaves better under X11, that I don't know.
    Desktop icons don't really make sense under GNOME anyway.

    The desktop icons extension is infamous for crashing the shell, leaking memory worse than a 5 day old nappy and causing the shell to run like dog crap. Which is probably why Ubuntu ships it.

      That the implementation is crap doesn't mean that it "doesn't make sense". GNOME is a desktop interface, not a mobile phone interface, and desktop icons must be front and centre otherwise it's not really usable.

          What does that even mean? Almost all mobile phones have desktop icons too (Android, iOS kind of, Ubuntu Touch, etc.). Hell, even my backup phone, a 2007 Motorola Razr V6 Maxx SE (which isn't even a smartphone!), has desktop icons.
