Suitcase is the one app I will never delete. And I've never seen speed issues since Fusion doesn't need to run in the background like the previous versions. I only keep a handful of fonts activated permanently and let the auto-activation plugin do it's thing for a few more fonts. When I need to add fonts, I launch Fusion, drag the new fonts in and quit. Easy-peasy.
I've also gotta wonder how important apps like Stuffit Deluxe and Toast are if extreme file compression and disk burning are infrequent, low priority tasks. Jim…?
Both Toast and Stuffit install extra crap.
Don't let Toast install Toast It or whatever the other Contextual Menu item is it tries to install. Same with Stuffit, forget Magic Menu or any Contextual Menu items.
Toast is totally benign if you don't install those, but I think Stuffit still installs a Preference pane. You can just use the built in compression of OS X, and if you need to unstuff Stuffit Expander is benign.
There's no pref pane for Stuffit. But all that crap is gone now — prefs in both user and root libraries, Application Support files — every steenkin' file associated with Stuffit and Toast and the other apps I mentioned. After auditing the software against my workflow and the last time any of 'em were used, it became clear that goombye time was in order. I did d/l a copy of Expander just in case I ever encounter the rare Stuffit archive. I also realized that the Mac's onboard disk burning utility does everything I'll ever need, so Toast is now, well, toast!.
