We tend to see many ways how to improve and optimize Windows base performance. But hardly seen one or two guides for other OS.
Why other OS? Isn’t Microsoft is good enough? Yes it is. But on some cases we need to try other OS too. There is other opportunity that we should try and see how it goes. Whether it fit with us. Mac’s is one of the Microsoft competitors.
1. Clean out Startup Items
Some applications automatically (or when asked) set themselves as a “startup item”, which causes them to open at every restart or login. You can find out what is in your startup items list by navigating to Apple Menu > System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items. You may be surprised at how many there are.
To remove them, simply select the item by clicking on its name and then hit the “minus” button at the bottom of the list. However, be sure that you know what you’re removing; otherwise you may kill some critical function for the next time you restart.
2. Turn off Universal Access, Bluetooth, Speech Recognition, and Internet Sharing if You Don’t Use Them
While System Preferences is open, take a look at a few other things. Apple has generously included a number of very useful features as preferences. Some, however, may not be useful to you, such as Universal Access (which offers help for visually and hearing impaired users) or Bluetooth (which allows certain devices to be used wirelessly). If you don’t use these features, verify that they are turned off. This will save you some valuable RAM and processor resources.
3. Clean Out ‘Other’ System Preferences
Don’t close System Preferences yet! Take a peek in the bottom section of your System Preferences window, labeled “Other”. How many items are down there? Do you know what they do? Do you use what they do?
If there is a Preference Pane that you don’t use or that you use only occasionally, disable it (either turn it “off” within the Preference Pane itself or remove it from the folder “~/Library/PreferencePanes”).

Other OS that you should try is Linux. Linux is open source. That’s mean its free. Everything related with this OS is free. Its has many versions. I recommend Ubuntu. One of the Linux based OS thats popular right now. The community is growing bigger and bigger. Ubuntu Homepage.
