Mac OS X Informit.com's very own Mac Reference Guide, Owen Linzmayer, again risks the slings and arrows of Apple's most ardent admirers with another look at how Tiger rubs him wrong. Take a look at "Ten More Things I Hate About Mac OS X" to see if you recognize any of your own pet peeves. Elsewhere on the same site, this chapter covers the initial installation and setup of Mac OS X Tiger, either as a fresh installation, or as an upgrade from a previous version. Detailed instructions are given to help you set your Mac up just how you want it.

Moving files across volumes easily

Simply drag the file while holding down the command key (the one with the Apple logo on).

As an indicator the overlaid (+) will dissappear, showing that the item you're dragging to a different volumen will not be copied, but moved. Which in effect is copying and automatically deleting the original when done.

While all other keyboard shortcuts can be found in the Help for the Finder, this one wasn't to be found there. strange.

Dragging and dropping files within the same volume moves things by default. No need to hold down the command key.
