The answer is simple: because I use it and I am used to have it.
Due to the way I usually make partitions in my computers I usually have many partitions and one of them is a big "Data D" partition, and it's very practical for me to simply use a keyboard shortcut such as Meta+E to open the computer place and then move the cursor arrows to choose the desired partition, most of the times it's that partition but it can be any other or the DVD drive I want to explore, etc.
Maybe some users don't want the My PC icon in the desktop, but showing it or not should be optional! Why remove it when it's perfectly functional? I mean who said it was useless or worthless? For me It's certainly not, and I would also like to have such optional function in KDE.
However, the roadmap says it could be revamped/improved instead of just removed. That would be awesome!
It would be great for example if you could have shortcut options when you right click the drives (such as USB flash drives) to run Disks and be able to format them or change other advanced settings such as automount.
