Default Question about a Windows based DAW vs. an OSX based DAW

So here's the question...

When you set up a Windows based DAW (digital audio workstation) for "pro" recording, there are a whole slew of recommended adjustments that increase the processing power of of your machine (assumably by decreasing the base workload of Windows by adjusting things like graphics, background programs, etc. Check out for a list of the adjustments I'm talking about.)

I've seen never this stuff mentioned for OSX though, and was wondering why? I mean, graphically OSX seems like it would be more intensive than Windows with all the icons zooming in and out and what have you... all I've ever read about it though just simply says that you don't have to make any adjustments... it never gives any real reason.

Does anyone know why you don't have to make the same adjustments with OSX?
