I want to get a desktop app to access the REST API.

I currently have set up a connected app and am using that personal client id.

Is there a way to get some kind of partner/anonymous client id so that users using the app do not have to set it up as a connected app and paste in their client id?

I see mention of a 'certified client application' at http://success.salesforce.com/questionDetail?qId=a1X30000000Ha55EAC - any detail on that?

Other orgs can use your connected app setup as is, they don't need to setup their own copy. –  superfell Jan 23 '13 at 15:25

If you give your org a namespace, you can Publish the Connected App. Then you can bake the Client ID value into the desktop client which you distribute.

The connected app only needs installing if the org admin wants to use some of the access control features of connected apps. Otherwise nothing else is needed. –  superfell Jan 23 '13 at 15:26
    
Woops - thanks! I've edited to reflect this. –  user320 Jan 23 '13 at 17:04
