Tab key in the Finder Desktop
Strange I didn't read that anywhere: did you ever try to use the Tabulation key in Finder X ? If the window is:

-- in icon view, you will move from an icon to the next one (as in OS 9);
-- in list view, you will CHANGE the column display type (DIFFERENT from OS 9, and much better);
-- in column view, you will move to the next column, or RETURN to the first column if already in the last one !

This is really smart IMHO. Also you can do the same in reverse order, using shift-tab instead.

Command (Apple) + TAB to move to your dock (opening it if hidden) and move through running applications. Also very handy.

In 10.1 it seems to have changed slightly. Use control-tab or control-shift-tab in list view.
