There is no point in keeping the apps if you are not using them as you do not know, they might be running in the background and consuming resources, which in turn would hamper your Mac’s performance.

Unlike Windows, applications do not close on Mac completely if you hit on CROSS (X) button as it would be still running in he background. In order to close the program completely, use Command + Shift + ESC, and this will kill its background process too.

Disable Unwanted Services

Just like in Windows, there are several processes running in the background so that hardware and software work smoothly, called as daemons. You can use a free app, Lingon in order to handle these services so that you can get things right.
