well, i know it works, but, I just don't want rubbish piling up my registry list, and don't wanna let the old crapy stuffs slow down my Macbook.

so do i have to? and if yes, how do i do? you know, in PC, there are alot of rubbish leaving behind if you just hit the uninstall button, and let the PC do the rest.

There is no registry on OSX (Unix). Registry is a pure Microsoft invention .

I think that you can just update. Just try and see what will the installer say

Good news. The registry exists in Windows only. You don't have one on OS X to worry about. I believe iLife '09 will simply upgrade '08, but if you're uninstalling software, the majority of the time, you can just drag it to the trash as the applications are usually completely self-contained.

If you want something that will also search for and take out bits that might be left behind in other folders, check out AppCleaner.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
