It took me a bit to realize that's the way it worked. I was trying to uninstall something and somebody ended up telling me I just drag the app to the trash and that's it. Excuse me?!?! Now that is a feature I can get use to.

The only thing I don't like, and this is probably only because I'm so use to managing resources on Windows systems, is that when you close an app like Safari by clicking the red button the app still remains in system memory and is sort of running back there. A lot of apps require you to do another right click on the icon and select 'quit' or you can click the Apple at the top left of the screen and select 'force quit' and it'll give you a list of apps that are running in the background which you can close. I don't really like that. When I'm done with something, I'm done. I don't want it hanging around in memory. So far, that's my only gripe.
