Desolace has always suffered from having NO POINT -- there's simply no story there. It was spun off from the Warcraft 3 Tauren plotlines, giving a home of sorts to the Centaur, but other than a pointless rep grind there was really no reason to go there (other than Maraudan).I dont think its really changed that much in Cata - i stopped by briefly while leveling an alt, but i couldnt shake the feeling of just wanting to get PAST all of it and on to the next zone.In contrast, i felt a complete sense of amazement when i got down into the new Feralas - I didnt think the zone had changed much, but i rode up to the gates of the new Night Elf Garrison and literally said "Holy *&$#" at how large and interesting it was - even if there wasnt really much to do there (yet, i hope).

When Maraudon is the best thing in the zone you've got some issues.

the reason to go to old desolace was great glorious gobs of XP. If you did it right it was 3 (huge) quest circuits and a couple of dings. I leveled every toon I have through old desolace because it was the fastest way to get through the "boring 40s". Was the zone fun? thats a tough question. I think there were some places in there that were pretty fun. the mob density in that orc stronghold kept you on your toes for sure. On the other hand the place was just depressing and heading out to an island of nagas was exciting because there would be a tree!

There actually is a point to Desolace--if you're aiming for the Guardian of Cenarius title. The Cenarion Circle has a huge hub there, leading to lots of xp, lots of rep, and quests that, most importantly, are not in Silithus.
