-    <p><strong>Background image</strong> &mdash; Setting the background
-    image for the Nautilus-drawn desktop also sets the background for
-    xmonad's workspaces which are drawn independently from Nautilus.
-    If you need to change the image programmatically (i.e. from some
-    extension setting in xmonad's <code>Config.hs</code>), you can use
-    the command:</p>
+    <p><strong>Disable splash screen and Nautilus desktop</strong>
+    &mdash; Some find the Nautilus-managed desktop unhelpful when used
