The Windows Registry is one of the primary cause for Windows slowing down, because it's a huge trash bin of software left-over files. I wonder, is there anything of the kind in MacOS?

Some similar information with the one stored by Windows Registry, can be found in a Mac's following paths ~/Library/Preferences and /Library/Preferences and are called .plist files. Mac OS X keeps an application's settings in two places: inside the application, and in the user's preferences.
