OSX has No Registry, no DLL's. Very boring OS for people used to fighting with the registry!

There are maintenance apps like Onyx that many here at Mac Forums run from time to time.

There are several Uninstallers. With most apps (Unlike Windows) just throw the application in the trash and it's gone. Unlike Windows OSX Apps are all self contained. There are a few files (small config and data) that might get left behind, and if you want to get rid of them you can either do it manually or use an Uninstaller App like AppCleaner which is free or AppDelete which costs a little.

Other than running Onyx, there is not normally much maintenance to do in OSX.

I hope that helps you a bit!

Baggss sort of beat me to it. Cocktail is another little App like Onyx to run the chron scripts and clean up a few things.
