"Unfortunately, Filelight doesn't offer the ability to delete files."

Using Filelight-0.6.4 I found the Delete option very useful:

   Use right-mouse-click on a file to get the Delete option.
   Use right-mouse-click on a directory to get the Recursive Delete option.

Cool beans. Unfortunately, I was testing 0.6.3, which is the version included with KDE 3.2rc1. Deletion is a new feature to the 0.6.4 release.

File deletion in FileLight

The functionality for Undelete is not present in many filesystems (and/or their common installation) used on Linux. The combination of {GUI + Delete + no Undelete} is particularly dangerous, and there are vehement arguments about how to handle it. In practice, as few as one or two mistakes per year is enough to dissuade many users.
