Pet Peeve – Thumbs.db

Having moved from Windows XP to GNU/Linux, the trail of Thumbs.db files left behind in my home directory is really annoying. It reminds me of Windows and the files aren’t hidden on a unix filesystem. Here is a command I used to rid myself of this reminder (posted here mostly to help me remember it):

find ~ -name Thumbs.db -print0 | xargs -0 rm

And stay out! 😉
