Linux does not use a registry, so nope.
1. Does Linux Ubuntu / Mint (and other) needs a registry maintenance (a registry cleaner)?
Not really. Most Linux distros use either EXT3 or EXT4 for their filesystem (Windows uses NTFS or FAT32.) The structural differences between NTFS/FAT32 and EXT3/4 are such that EXT3/4 does not suffer from fragmentation unless the drive is 95% or more full already. Here's a very good and easy to understand overview of why EXT3/4 is fragmentation-resistant: http://geekblog.oneandoneis2.org/index.php...d_defragmenting
2. Does Linux Ubuntu / Mint (and other) needs a disk maintenance (a disk defragmenter)?
I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "Startup Manager" but I'll try to answer you anyway. If you mean a program that controls what programs automatically start when you log in/power on then yes, Linux does. It's called init.d. How you interact with init.d depends on your distro, but most come with slick little apps to make starting/stopping programs easy.
3. Does Linux Ubuntu / Mint (and other) has a start-up manager?
4. Does Linux Ubuntu / Mint (and other) needs a separate uninstall manager... does Linux Ubuntu's / Mint's (and other's) built-in uninstall manager uninstalls completely (including files, folders... etc.)?
Yes, this is true. Linux is intrinsically more secure than Windows is. While there may be debate over whether this is because Windows is a bigger target or because Linux is better designed, the fact remains that Linux is safer. There are antivirus applications for Linux, though these programs actually only scan for known Windows viruses (so if you're running a file or e-mail server with Windows clients, they come in handy).
5. Is it true, that any Linux Distribution doesn't needs an any kind of Anti-Malware software to stay secure?
More than will fit here.
6. What built-in tools does Linux Ubuntu / Mint (and other) has? What separate tools does Linux Ubuntu / Mint (and other) "accepts"?
