Apple In this day and age of iOS this and iPad that you'd nearly forget it, but the gadget maker from Cupertino actually makes personal computers and an accompanying operating system as well. It's been nearly three years since the last substantial release, so it's about time: Apple has just announced a press event titled 'Back to Mac', with a lion on the invite.

My most wanted feature

As mundane as it may sound, the feature I want in OS X the most is to make that damn cut command in the Finder actually do something! Why can't I cut and paste files like I can in *every* other major GUI environment? The command is there in the menu, it has cmd+x assigned... but it doesn't freaking do anything! Make it work, Apple. This bit, at least, is not rocket science.
The feature I'd like next is an option to completely disable those metadata files on non-HFS+ volumes. I'm sick of my thumbdrives and sd cards getting polluted with .DS_Store, .Trashes, etc. Sure, I can turn off .DS_Store for network shares with a PList edit, but that only stops .DS_Stores (all the other dot files still get created and only for network shares. My external drives still get cluttered with that crap, and I hate it, especially when it decides to do ._ files for *every* file in that folder! Aaaaarrghhh! I know about Blue Harvest, but that's a reactive approach and besides I equate that to AppZapper, i.e. having to pay for a feature that should be part of the os.
