    Just upgraded from 10.6.8 to ML and a coworker mentioned that oh you won't have a cluttered desktop anymore. I Have tons of files on my desktop and my trusty Macintosh icon still there.

    Question is there a preference somewhere to switch on the new look?

    Huh? After the upgrade, your desktop should look exactly the same on ML as it did on SL.

    I really don't know what you are talking about, could you rephrase your question?

    Probably working on bad information, but to rephrase:

    She was trying to tell me that ML wouldn't keep stuff on the desktop rather I would have to click open a window to finder and navigate to a master folder. Or that somehow I would set a location that could either be a shortcut or quick launched somehow.

    ML will keep the HDD, External Disks, CDs, and Servers on your desktop if you want them to.

    The option is in the Finder Preferences.
