Linux is a bit different but logical (maybe more so) nonetheless, but this 
isn't the place for that discussion. Understand that with Windows most 
installs place dll's in other folders (%windir%\system32 for one) and stuff 
data in the registry (usually multiple places) and sometimes creating and 
editing other supplementary files/folders as well.
I think that for the most part Linux is a lot "cleaner" (very close to, if not 
at the same point it was before the install) after a program uninstall than 
Use 'linux filesystem structure' (without the quotes) in a Google search and 
you will find enough informational assistance.
