Move Background Windows in Mac OS X [QuickTip]

One of the things I love about Mac OS X is that you can learn new features even after using it for years.  Here's a tip I picked up via the Mac Life Podcast recently.

If you've got a messy desktop, you can get to a window's content and still keep the focus on the top window.  Just hold down the Command key and move the window with your pointer- it will not overlap the top window.  Great for referring something in the background window and typing in another.
