You can put your computer on carpeted floors, but not recommended. Usually a computer desk you buy from a store will have a cubby or some sort to carry your tower in. I just put mine on a shelf next to my desk so the only thing I have on the desk is my flat screen LCD monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Nothing on the floor besides the subwoofer for my Logitech speaker system.

It depend on the person working on the PC. I have carpted flooring in all the rooms except in the bathroom and kitchen floor. There was no way I'm working in either of those rooms. I built so many PCs right on the living room or bedroom carpet without any kind of damage due to static discharge. You just have to be careful and ground yourself at all times.
