I never listen that. And I sure you that I meet a lot of Amiga fans since 1987.

How do you delete files on a WB1.x disk using the CLI?

I`m not sure if the question is serious but in CLI/Shell the delete command is used for delete something.

I never saw Acorn Archimedes, but there were a lot of adverts in it in the Greek Pixel magazines. Some of the adverts about the Archimedes were writing in bold "Emulates PC". So, I was using the meme to bash the guys in the maths class by saying them "Why don't you buy Archimedes? It's so advanced, IT emulates PC".

So instead of learning Archimedes Theorems, they can just buy Archimedes computer and emulate PC as a plus.

Funny, because on my copy of WB1.3, the delete command does not exist in the C directory so I am forced to use the actual GUI to move stuff in the trashcan. I am using ADF files in the TOSEC collection, so that's probably why.

There is another way. Enter "Dir OPT I" and Dir will enter interactive mode. After each file listed, you can enter a command, where DEL or DELETE deletes the file.

I would say yes

...but not really sure how this is related to "Amiga questions you've always been too embarrassed to ask" though?
