What are only necessary processes (minimal set) for OS X work?
What are the differences in the sets for different versions (Lion minimal set, Mountain Lion minimal set)?
What are the processes that are not needed for the OS X operates?
I know the descriptions of the processes (here: http://triviaware.com/macprocess/all), but I don't know what is the minimal set of pprocesses to start the OS X (Mountain Lion) with GUI, (e.g. without dashboard, without notification center).
I would like to have a minimal set of processes/services for the system can boot and launch the minimal graphical desktop environment (like KDE/Unity/GNOME in Linux world) + possibility to launch the terminal (simple bash) + possibility to launch/quit processes + process monitoring + (optionally) finder. All the other processes needed I can find out using additive approach/cycle (try to do an action - find out needed processes/services/libraries - add it)
