    Yes. Previous Macs always had it on the desktop. I can't find it using this OS. TIA!

    And if you want the HDD icon on the desktop, go to Finder / Preferences / General, and click that small box to the left of hard disks.

    I've been putting off this update because of my Serato DJ Pro app and I'm still scared that I'd have problems with my Adobe CC. But now that an update on Serato was released, I am thinking of jumping into the update. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    i finally took the plunge - after letting go of any aspirations to continue editing audio on Ableton on the Mac (i have v9 and didn't update further) i'm now on Big Sur... on my MBP 13 late 2013 :)

    my biggest grip so far - the "loss" of the notification center calculator.
