If all you're running is one application, then you don't need a desktop. If you're multitasking, then of course you want your desktop to be fast, it should be up there in priority at all times. So caching stuff for the desktop is a good idea. Besides, it takes way longer to load stuff from the hard drive than to free some memory so an application can allocate some for its own use.
