Editor: Wastebasket is an Applescript application, which mimics behaviour of the Desktop Trash Icon in Mac OS 9. Why should I use Wastebasket? The trash in Mac OS X breaks a fairly fundamental interface guideline (actually the whole Dock does that) -It moves about, and can even be hidden. 鈥揋UI Waste targets should remain in the same place, so that you don鈥檛 have to waste time looking closely when aiming for them: For example the Apple Menu, or Hard Disk Icons. -Yes you can, in current Versions of Mac OS X pin the dock to the side with a hack, but Apple could break that quite easily, just as they broke earlier hacks which put the trash on the desktop. -Also pinning the trash makes the other icons on the dock move around even more. If that's how you want to use Mac OS X then that's up to you, don't criticise me for doing it my way!
-It's possible to alias the trash folder to the desktop using terminal, but when you try to eject a disk by dropping it on the icon you have created it doesn't work, it will Create an alias of the disk in the trash, which is not what you wanted to do is it?
