If you have moved to Mac and you too miss the Windows "Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V" function for files and folders, check this out:

Woah, that's long winded! *cringe*

Still... gotta love AppleScript, in which Apple attempt to make programming accessible to the layman...

Code:
tell application "Finder" to move myFile to myDest


Beautiful. If only C++ was like that.

I think Ctrl-X / Ctrl-V on files was most of the point of the article.

I might actually need to read this article over and create the scripts it talks about. I use a Mac now and I definitely miss using keyboard shortcuts to cut, paste, and delete files and folders. I don't know why these features aren't included in Mac OS X normally.
