Are the Operating Systems on the same disk or are they on multiple ones? If there is more than one operating system on the disk, then you can use Gparted to reformat the partitions so you can use them as data partitions. You can use lsblk to list all of the partitions so you know which one to blow away by looking at the mount point. e.g the line ...

When I did it, the Windows installation disk wouldn't run until I reformatted the hard drive as NTFS format. I booted the GParted live USB and used GParted to reformat the hard drive, but you could also use the GParted application that is included in the Ubuntu live DVD/USB. Don't forget to back up any data that you want to save before you reformat the hard ...

If the program is not listed in the Add 'Add/Remove Programs', use the Ubuntu Dash and search for "Browse C: Drive". Click on the first result that appears (make sure it's and application). This will open WINE's C: drive in the file manager. Now you can just go into the "Program Files" folder and delete to your hearts content!

I am guessing you meant 'Wine' software, used in Linux for executing Windows software on Linux. In that case, just go to the Wine option through menu, use 'Uninstall Wine Software' option, (on a slow computer, it may take a while) a window will appear with title of 'Add/Remove Programs'. This window's Applications tab shows the currently Wine installed ...

You know you can just add the Xubuntu packages to any existing Ubuntu? It's a meta-package available in apt or the Software Center or Synaptic... I think apt-get install xubuntu-desktop will do it. And for just the XFCE window manager, it's apt-get install xfwm4

If you are referring to using package managers [either terminal or GUI], then it is fairly easy. If you are referring to compiling software from source, then that is a bit more complex but you will find it easier. You will find both easier as time goes on.

Actually Linux makes it a lot easier to install software. The problem is that most people are so hung up (used to) the Microsoft way that they find hard to install it on Linux. Most Linux distros give you a repository of applications that you can install at the tip of you fingers. You can use command line commands to download and install from repos, the ...

If you aren't used to something it doesn't mean it is more complex. In fact installing under Ubuntu is easier! By default package management is held by Ubuntu Software Center where you install an application with one click on Install button instead of Next - Next - Install - OK in Windows OS.

You asked, Now my question is if vlc depended on some packages that were uninstalled due to uninstallation of some other stuff, then why would those packages be removed even when vlc had dependency on them?

A. the commands you entered do not install reaver, just download it's source code. B. if you really installed reaver from source code, you can remove it by downloading the tar (the second commend you stated), decompress it (run tar xf reaver-1.4.tar.gz) enter the src directory (cd reaver-1.4/SRC) and run sudo make distclean. This will remove any file ...

Try this : sudo apt-get purge wine* This will remove every single package related to wine. This is probably because there are more than one package for wine in the repositories.

Ok,I think you should make sure to install it by using apt-get install wine rather than other ways. So I think you can remove wine by your comman, if you used apt-get install wine command to install it.
