X-Ray drag and drop

BeOS 5 introduces a great new way to move files, folders, or apps to other locations. Drag an object over a folder icon and hold it there for two seconds. The contents of that folder will spring out, letting you see its contents. You can navigate through the hierarchy and drop the object into any subfolder quickly.

To get the X-ray view without waiting, hold down Shift as you drag.
