Use the Position tool (P) to move clips to create a gap.
If you try to use the Selection tool (A) it will keep the clips connected.
Also Option W can insert a gap.
Also if you use Shift Delete when removing a clip you'll have a gap instead of rippling.

I wish people wouldn't pass judgment until they really went through the program in detail. It's very different than FCP7 It's quite powerful despite its missing features, once you learn it.

Because gaps are like transparent slugs, you can actually Connect clips to them.
Also you can select a bunch of Connected clips and create a Secondary Storyline which can be edited like a V2 track in which the gaps are transparent so that the Primary Storyline (V1) is visible at those points. Use the V command to disable clips as needed as well. You can actually use the Secondary Storyline to create an alternate cut if needed.
