They're saving space for more icons, obviously.

Either that, or an update to something else broke them (like a security update broke desktop wallpaper).

But I hope that this is the beginning of a display of realisation that much of the cr@p that they dump on us is neither needed nor wanted.

It's an OS.  It should handle the hardware, and let us run the apps that we want to run.  Fullstop/period/end of requirements
