    It has been years since I bought my last Mac, so please forgive me if I sound ignorant... When I looked at the screenshots of the new Yosemite OS, it appeared to lack the familiar desktop icons such as Hard Drive, Documents, etc. All I see is the dock. Has Apple done away with desktop icons?

    They are still there. You can choose to hide them but this has been in since maybe ML.

    Thanks for the responses! As you can tell from my signature, I haven't been on this website since 2005.
