@Kyle - "not advised", but possible right? It is only a drive after all.

The cut/paste method we had previously on Finder was drag/drop (for same Volume move) or drag/Cmd-drop (for moves to external or network volumes) - There was no keyboard equivalent.

@Tim Büthe - Leopard and Snow Leopard and prior versions of OS X never did this, of course Linux and Windows did it using CUA shortcuts (C-x, C-c, C-v) That's not of use/interest when you're not actually talking about one of those platform. Please cut down the noise, we want signal here. The shortcut on Lion is new, and it's designed in such a way that it addresses Apple's "semantic issue" with "Cut", and instead is copy / move, and not cut / paste.

@Umesh Kacha, if you want better answers, you need to provide more info. What Windows app do you want to run.

if you use umount like that, you'll leave the /Volumes/<My disk image> folder lying around. Use diskutil eject /Volumes/<My disk image> instead, it'll clean up after you.

if you feel the need to use an alias with more chars than the actual command, consider rewiring your temporal neocortex.

It's worth noting that you will need to install XCode before you can install MacPorts.

Interesting, I just assumed TBH that it was the UI control. I did check, and this dbl-click sizing works in Finder's Column Mode. Hopefully it'll get patched.

This seemed quite cool until I went into VLC, and the video srub was absolutely horrifying. The main problem with this is that every other non-mac device you'll use will work differently, if I could configure it for just scrolling "page" style apps, then perhaps it'd be good, but for it to be universal is not a win for me.
