So how can i properly uninstall software in osx jag?
I can't seem to find a page in osx to do this.
Do i have to do this manually?

It seems to me that with most OS-X apps - all you have to do to un-install is simply delete the application and it's folder...

Registry is a beast on Windows
. There is no such thing on the Mac that needs hacking/tweaking to properly remove apps. Simply drop the app and any of its support files into the trash and you are finished!
Here's a demonstration movie for you:
Most apps are really that easy to remove!
Here's a second demonstration movie:
In this movie, I am removing Adobe Photoshop. You'll note that I also navigate to the "/Library/Application Support" folder because Adobe stores some support files there. That is the standard location for apps to put any additional files.

And though they aren't exactly multi-gigabyte monsters, you'll probably also find a preference file for the app in /Library/Preferences/
