I think the folder contains all necessary data for the installation
and is not created on the desktop but you can choose where you want it,
the installer should not be launched from the desktop but from a regular
file system folder if you like your desktop cleaner;
it is also a very useful folder because you can use it to perform
several OSGEO4W installation in other PC without having to download all
the needed stuff again and again, so not a folder to get rid of IMHO.
