Should I use apt-get remove or apt-get purge
apt-get remove :
remove is identical to install except that packages are removed
instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its
configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the
package name (with no intervening space), the identified package
will be installed instead of removed.
purge is identical to remove except that packages are removed and
purged (any configuration files are deleted too).
I would tend to use purge if you tend to not want to keep any configuration files around.
