Cycle Get Info options via keyboard (10.1.5) Desktop
I just found out in OS X (I am using 10.1.5) that when you go to Show Info on an item, you can use Command-[ and Command-] to cycle through the different info views. Use this instead of the pop-up menu if you, like me, use the keyboard a lot.

[Editor's note: Due to the changes in the Get Info windows, this trick does not work in 10.2.]

One also used to be able to scroll through the Get Info views with a scroll wheel in Mac OS 10.1.5.

10.2 - retrograde step

Yes, the Get Info pane in 10.2 is definitely a retrograde step as far as navigation (both with the keyboard and with a scroll wheel) is concerned.

Fortunately it uses standard controls so you can tab through it, but that's still not as good as in 10.1.

10.2 - There's no retrograde step

If you want the same Info panel as in 10.1 you have simply to press "option+command+i".
