Simple uninstall doesn't remove configuration files, purge does a
complete uninstall, I always use purge to uninstall things on Debian or
Ubuntu. I've never used this "Ubuntu Software Center", but I imagine
that in the usual Ubuntu fashion it's tailored to brain-dead people, so
it probably doesn't have an option to fully purge a package. I just
use aptitude for my package management.

With best regards, Stas.
