Glad someone said that.
With a 16:9 ratio screen, it's nice to have some things at the side always visible, like IM contacts or tool bars in programmes like Office.
Right click can always be simulated by pressing the ctrl key when clicking the mouse. There are many useful functions on some applications.
Delete using Command Delete after select what you wantto get rid of, then Shift-command-del to empty the recycle bin.
Some other great shortcuts...
Command-Shift-A for the application folder
Command-shift-n for a new folder in any directory
F9 shows all active windows, but only if they're on the screen. If you minimise or send them to the dock in any other way, they won't show.
F10 clears the screen - useful if you want something from the desktop.
F12 shows your widgets.
