A script to remove .DS_Store files on any *NIX Machine

Why not just use "find . -name .DS_Store -print -delete"?

Because -delete isn't available in GNU find.

PLEASE, DON'T USE THE ABOVE FIND COMMAND, IT WILL DELETE EVERYTHING! For those who are interestsed, it is missing '-name' right before '.DS_Store'
