Do or Die? well imagine when we install "friend like" softwares who tries to call "home" and you cannot stop that! As I launch apps, the most irritating question pops up "There is an update available" and then Azureus, another nice software actually even upgrades itself SO, we don't even know what information they send back home without our knowledge?!? imagine when pests are hogging the memory and processor unnecessarily. And there is no way to kill them? Or a guide on how to terminate them from starting?

CPU usage idle never goes to 99! its always something going on in the background! I figured to disable Spotlight and some others through google, but taking this much time to kill apps really sucks. If there were some "Msconfig" type apps, it would be GREAT!

I already configured Firewall and killed Bonjour and spotlight but I don't like messing with SUDOs. Also, I managed to disable every automatic update check through "Preferences" but some apps are toooooo friendly and do not obey. I just don't like them starting automatically (updates or execution initially or upgrading)

I guess this makes OSX more like "spyware" platform. I guess the next version of Win should blow it's arse. If you look at the history, W95 "core", W98 "shell improvements", WME "Bloatware". Again the hard work W2K "core", XP "shell improvements", Wvi "Bloatware".

So, the next version is expected to be "Core" again ;)

Fine but thats like saying kill the planet, screw the oil, waste the money, loose the free rights of protection, and I LOVE YOU BUSH!

Al I asked for an app which is more like MSCONFIG, but you guys can't admit the fact that "You" don't know such app OR can't say that "Such app does not exist". I mean look at all those text above.... nasty nasty, so indirect.... completely out of topic in the first place...

if you don't want apps to start up, pref>accounts>login items,

if you don't want apps to self update app>pref>uncheck check update

if you don't want apps to connect to the internet config your firewall to "set access for specify services..."

& unless your looking at kiddy porn, who cares if OS X takes ten seconds out of your day to update software for your security.
