Improve OpenSolaris Performance

So, you downloaded the latest version of OpenSolaris and it is installed and running. Well there are a few (I will add more as they become aware to me) things you can remove to improve performance and slightly clean up your system.

Following can improve performace:
Remove the Update Manager GUI, since at this time it does nothing in OpenSolaris (removes the update manager process).
# pkgrm SUNWupdatemgrr SUNWupdatemgru
Remove the Basic Registration Application (improve the startup of JDS/GNOME).
# svcadm disable svc:/system/basicreg:default
# pkgrm SUNWbrgr SUNWbrg
Following cleans the system up:
Remove PPP.
# pkgrm SUNWpppdt SUNWpppdu SUNWpppd SUNWpppdr SUNWpppg
Remove the UUCP Utilities.
# svcadm disable svc:/network/uucp:default
# pkgrm SUNWbnur SUNWbnuu
