10.5: A cautionary tale on overloaded Desktops in 10.5
Authored by: kerouassady on Jan 17, '08 07:49:32AM

As a desktop support professional, ridiculously messy desktops have been a small thorn in my side forever. Creating a default downloads directory is, I'll admit, one of my favorite changes in Leopard. I thought this was just an implementation to encourage user tidiness but given how Quick View works, the Downloads directory may have been more intentional to avoid performance problems that the average user may not be able to deal with if they are like most of my users and just download crap constantly to their desktop and never clean up after themselves.
