design decision
Authored by: hayne on Nov 26, '03 04:14:26PM

The author of this hint said "I'm sure there's some UNIX-y explanation for this".
Actually, the explanation is nothing to do with UNIX. Finder is (just) an application and so what it does is up to its designers. They made decisions about what parts of the disk a typical user would want to search. They could have included the Trash or any other folder had they wanted to. If you think they made the wrong decision, tell Apple via http://www.apple.com/macosx/feedback/

I'm the author of the hint. In my opinion, the Trash should be included in standard "everywhere" searches because it's a folder that users interface with all the time. In some sense, it's the MOST IMPORTANT folder to be able to search... since files in there are on the proverbial chopping block.
