Just not an option in the Finder for the Mac OS
It is a common complaint of those coming from Windows
There are some workarounds and a few threads discussing it around here
A search would probably dig them back up

I personally use PathFinder (http://cocoatech.com/pathfinder/) which does offer cut/paste for files

Cut does seem to work for text though. You can cut and paste text in Textedit, for instance.

Yes, within applications, but not in the Finder for files

I use Total Finder (http://totalfinder.binaryage.com/) which also has the cut option. I also like it because of tabbed browsing in the Finder window. That's a really nice feature.

It is actually an option in he Finder in Lion. In a different way, though:
