I think the strong feelings about the trash can come from explaining to so many people that if you put it in the trash, it's essentially been deleted! It's not a temporary place for things you *think* you might not want, it's a courtesy to give you 'one last chance' if you delete the wrong thing accidentally.

I think the OS X name (Trash) is better than the Windows one (Recycle Bin). I knew a secretary who filed everything (and I mean everything) that she thought she might want to use again in the Recycle Bin. I mean, recycle means use again, right? Only then the disk cleanup wizard decided to empty the trash on her behalf, and we don't back up the recycle bin ...
