Is this really true?

Someone said that trash cans are something that belongs to the shell. On
w32 that is fortunately true only in a very limited sense. You can do
file deletions without using the trash can and you must use what I
believe MS call "shell api".

However it comes with the system! That is the important point. And of
course such a component should follow with the system so that different
shell developers s does not invent the wheel again. (Doing that may
create a lot of work for other people.)

Why not try to take that up with the GNU/Linux developers?
