In Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (and previous versions like 10.4 Tiger and 10.3 Panther) there are several ways to un-install applications.
Heres a couple
A. Simply Drag the Application to the trash, (you might need to enter your password) and Empty the trash. Bam! Thats all!
You can download a program that completely erases the entire Program from your system (because the programs sometimes leave something called preference files, in your system, so when their installed again, you'll have them back the same way it was before)
B. Download the application "App Delete" (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/31123), download it, install it, and open it. *It will open, and all you have to do is drag any application you want to uninstall to the icon in the dock. (You might have to enter your password), and thats it!
As for keyboard shortcuts, i know, they can get confusing, but its really just down to how much you use them.
Here is the direct apple link to their keyboard shortcuts for Mac OS X
Lets take a shortcut for example.. Such as this one
Option-Shift-Command-Delete - which empties the trash without you needing to confirm it (it'll just empty it immediately)
This is the keyboard layout on Mac's
Option - is the 'Alt' button on your apple keyboard.
Shift - is the 'Shift' button on your apple keyboard
Command- is the Command (is an infinity symbol) / Apple Logo (Apple logo may or may not be there, depending on the keyboard you are using, but its still the same)
Delete - Delete Key lol
Press them together, and presto! trash is emptied!
theres the quick guide!
