It looks like the Mesh system (the one with the IE icon) is the only one that's had the default icons (My Documents, My COmputer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer) turned on with the others going for the default clean desktop look. I believe that Microsoft has a contractual agreement with OEMs stating that if they decide to put any icons on the desktop then they must also put Microsoft icons such as Windows Media Player and MSN on the desktop. Doesn't look like it's well-enforced then.

Personally, my desktop just has the Recycle Bin on it.
