You can cut and paste files on OS X

Mac and to some extent PC's are trying to move people away from managing directory/file structures and instead focus on using the various search tools to locate files. On the mac platform I miss the ability to cut and paste files (these structures are important if you do things like web work). Too often I find myself having to copy/paste and then going back and deleting from the original location. Not a big deal but I miss that.

On Windows you cut and paste.  On OS X you copy and move.  Select the file you want to move (cmd-c).  Then at the destination you do alt-cmd-v to move the file.

There are other semi-hidden functions like this which are revealed if you just hold the alt key while perusing the menus.
