    Uninstalling means deleting the program (and some other files).

    By far the most storage hungry part of GB are the loops, so you might just delete the corresponding folder: HD/Library/Audio/Apple Loops.

    If you want more free space, delete the Instrument Library: HD/Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Instrument Library.

    That will leave GB without loops and instruments, but still capable of recording audio.

    If you want to get rid of GB completely, do a Spotlight search with "garageband" and delete all the files that come up (that includes the program).

    And please don't write in all-caps, that's considered shouting (and hard to read).

    I thought in the new OS Spotlight doesn't find all the GB-related files?

    Okay, you might be missing out on the prefs files - but on the other hand, it's not a big deal if you miss them. Certainly not from a disk space point of view.
