After a week of using I've found out the thing that's not so good about it (the UK version, anyway...)


@duncanmid Well, is it not proper vocab for the UK? It's not the trash it's the Rubbish Bin in the UK

@brandon @duncanmid back in the early Mac OS days, the UK called it Wastebasket. Did they change that?

@brandon @chucker Bin just looks and sounds wrong. Wastebasket was too wordy.

There was nothing wrong with Trash - it was the correct computing terminology for where the files you don't want go.

A 'Bin' is something under the kitchen sink that no one wants to empty.

@duncanmid @chucker Leave it to an American company to fuck up localisation of vocab 🤷‍♂️
