Dave,
All of your device, drive icons are contained in the My Computer icon on
your desktop. Since everything is mounted automatically now, I guess
someone thought it easier and cleaner to contain them all in one place.
Things like all those drive icons sitting on the desktop tends to scare
Windows users coming over. :-)

Lee
