Hi Linuxu, greetings from America. There is no built-in uninstaller application in either the classic Mac OS (OS 9 and below) or Mac OS X. The reason is we Mac users generally don't require uninstallers - for the most part, our developers behave much more responsibly and don't deposit files all over the place like developers do on Windows. Some application installers do also have an uninstall function, which you may be able to get to by opening the installer while holding down the option key. But for the most part, the way programs are removed on the Mac is by dragging their folders to the trash. There may be some support files on the drive (like preferences files), and you can find and trash them too if you wish. In some cases you may need to go to the Extensions or Control Panels folder in System Folder to trash control panels or extensions that may have been installed along with the program you're removing, but for the most part you don't need to think about that. Finally, Aladdin Systems (now named Allume) sold/sells an uninstaller for the Mac OS named Spring Cleaning. You may well be able to track down an old copy some place. The new version of Spring Cleaning is only compatible with OS X. But, as I said before, you really don't need an uninstaller on your Mac.

That right there sums up the unintstall process.
