I cannot agree with EarlyMon that there is anything to be gained by killing bloatware apps. Only true 'rogue' apps which refuse to terminate or exit memory properly.

It matters because I don't want an app I that I rarely use to run on its own taking up memory.
They can affect performance by using memory.
If you don't agree so be it, that's your right, I honestly don't care, but just because that's your opinion doesn't mean I have to agree.
I think it's incredibly amusing that so many of you advocate rooting and romming to have complete control of your devices, yet when someone wants to be able to control the app behavior you take issue with it.
I have cron and sar running on my Nexus, don't need it but it was fun to do.
You have fun by doing what you want on yours, that's what would be fun for me.
I would love to be able to control how and when my apps start by using RC scripts or inittab.
I'd love to be able to tune the memory, caching and paging space.
It may not be necessary but it would sure be fun for me.
