I was wondering how many people have icons and/or files on their desktop. Personally with the dock, I do not find a need for icons on my desktop, and files on the desktop is just yuck in my opinion. I feel like the only thing that would be on my desktop are open application windows that I am running As for my windows machine at work. It's cluttered with icons and files. For some reason as hard as I try, I still manage to have a bunch of icons and files on there. Windows 7 has helped a bit, but every time I clean out my desktop on my windows machine, I somehow always end up with a bunch if icons and files on my desktop.
