Mac Annoyance - Strange Copy Paste behaviour

In the systems I am used to you choose if you want to Copy or cut the file when you are at the "source file" then you paste the file where you want it. 

On the Mac you fire cmd + C which to me suggests you are about to copy, but then when you reach the target, thats when you decide wheter to copy or paste !! I think this is error prone and not logical

  1. Finder is pretty useless and generally pretty user hostile. Perhaps the worst element in OS X. I use Path Finder. Not free but very powerful.

  2. Thanks for the input Lars

    I notice that in order to get the Cut-Paste function you must learn the keyboard shortcut by heart. There is no support in the "right click menu". So for casual users tricky!
