To all of you think cut - paste isn't an option on OS X, install xtrafinder. You can have many new features in Finder. Enjoy

So you have to download an application that should be built into the OS?

Yes @Woz it's a means to an end. Don't think Apple will ever listen to their users

Technically they do because they allow content to the store, but how the hell cant something so obvious not be in OS X. I am clearly using it in iOS even if it shows up and I don't even need it as an option, hence I am even using the latest Yosemite version.

In the latest build (10130) it seems that most bugs have been solved. I've enjoyed seeing this OS develop over time and am very pleased to see how it works on my Acer Switch 10. Love the touchpad functions. I also use Mac OSX. A truly reliable OS, but I've come to find that Windows still has more functionality. I'm not going to state that one is better than the other, but Microsoft listens to the feedback that they get and do something with it. All in all, Mac OSX is real fun and easy to use, but when it comes down to functionalities I prefer Windows.
