    In SL, it allows me to put Apps from Application folder to Utilities folder and put some apps from Utilities folder to sub-folder in Utilities.

    When I try it with Lion, it just copy the application.

    Now, my Application folder looks dirty with unused apps such as Chess, Font Book etc.

    Put them in their own folder and put it on it's own page, or the last page.

    That's the hyperbole of the day right there. Care to elaborate how your applications folder is "useless" or if organization is so important to you why Chess belongs in your Utilities folder?

    I think Apple is trying to tell you to use Launch Pad.

    Forget about your Application folder, just use Launch Pad, you can have the first desktop with just your most used applications, then put everything else in a folder on the second desktop, organize however you want it to look.

    By default you create aliases when moving the applications, and cmd + move creates a copy. Standard Apple apps can't be deleted or moved for security reasons I guess, and to prevent people from messing things up (I know enough people who delete all sorts of standard apps by just dragging stuff around without knowing what they're doing).

    What kind of permissions do you have when you cmd + i on an Apple app? Perhaps adding read & write for your own account will allow you to move it, instead of just copying it.
