I uninstalled steam beta via
sudo apt-get remove steam, but it doesn't remove ~/.steam and ~/.local/Steam where most of the files are. Is the Uninstaller corrupt?
When you run
As an example, let's think about a server running MySQL and creating huge databases. Now, if I want to switch from MySQL to Percona Server, I don't want my databases to be removed when I run
The same could be said for desktop tools such as Picasa if that's more easily approachable. You wouldn't want to lose your photo library when you remove the application itself, would you?
