Difference between Public Desktop and Desktop

I know this post is over 5 years old but it still has value so... To answer a lot of your questions about why some systems use Public Desktop and others use Desktop is because Microsoft has no common sense. There may be an actual logical reason for this but there is no way to actually search for the answer since Google and Bing are flooded with people posting junk. It's similar to my first job out of High School at a Nuclear Power plant. The Inventory was about 100,000 pages because people were calling things by different names. Some called a light bulb a lamp, others a bulb, others a light bulb.

I asked Microsoft this question, we'll see if they actually have a logical answer or just a Microsoft answer.
