Just btw, I'm not suggesting that the copy and paste functions are also greyed out, I was just making clear which 'cut' feature I was talking about.

Hmmm interesting. I didn't notice that~~ but I'm sure the cut function is still working because I still can use it on my Apple Mail.
I usually do copy & paste or cut & paste using shortcut....
Such as command + X then command + V
command + C then command + V

I just realized that when you copy and paste something in Lion, it actually does a cut and paste (I think). You can see that this is the case by copying something to a different location and then deleting the original (preferably empty the trash as well). The original will also be gone. The annoying thing is that even though this is a cut-paste, the original does not disappear from its position. That also explains how the copying is so much faster, since cutting and pasting just takes a pointer switch.

If you want to move files in the Finder, you can now Copy (Cmd+C) and Move Item (Cmd+Option+V) in Lion. This is the same functionality as Windows Cut & Paste in the Explorer.
