Getting the dream desktop!

The best desktop ever is really a desktop with nothing on it. That never really happens to me, I actually run out of icon space (even on a 23" ACD). Still, a desktop without anything is really great, but the only way to achieve this is by getting rid of the "Macintosh HD" icon as well as the external drives and CD/DVDs. I never got rid of these before because it was the way I loaded new Finder windows. It really isn't as necessary anymore because the Finder sidebar that is included with Leopard already covers all the shortcuts you need. With these icons gone, you can simply load a Finder window with "Command - N" when you are in the Finder. These icons can be disabled in the Finder Preferences (Command , ).

Thanks- I've always wanted a perfectly clean desktop, and now I'm one icon closer!
