Right clicking over something to obtain a pop-up menu of actions to
perform on it is an almost universal metaphor in the GUI world. If you
click on empty space, it´s assumed you want to perform actions on the
desktop.

It has worked that way from the OS/2 Workplace Shell (whose paradigm
was ´everything is an object´) to Windows, too... (and previous Gnome
versions).
