it was fairly ripped from Macintosh
's trash can. I think the analogy
is pretty obvious following the "desktop
" theme, Microsoft
should have just used a trash can as well...
I thought at first anyway.
You toss stuff in a trash can
, if you want you can dig through and get it out before its emptied. There is no recycling truck that comes and empties your Windows
recycle bin and recycles the materials within.
Well...then again, it is recycle
d. When you empty the recycle bin you free up those bytes
for re-use by other data. The files aren't just tossed in a landfill
somewhere to poison
So maybe recycle bin is the best analogy. Prepare to soft link "who gives a shit"
