That's possible, though I think I would have noticed. Especially since I
did this a few days ago. I just checked and aptitude gives me
$ sudo aptitude search ubuntu-desktop | egrep '\Wubuntu'
pi ubuntu-desktop - The Ubuntu desktop system
The 'i' means "installed" and the 'p' means "not installed" :P
$ sudo aptitude search ~i | egrep '\Wubuntu-desktop'
$ sudo aptitude search ~g | egrep '\Wubuntu-desktop'
Here the first line searches through installed packages and the second
through uninstalled packages. Neither list shows 'ubuntu-desktop' :P
Maybe this is a bug?
In any event, there's no harm in an expert removing ubuntu-desktop.
That's just a metapackage, it doesn't actually do anything.
I'm interested to know why my Ubuntu things that 'ubuntu-desktop' is
both installed and un-installed.
/\/_/ A life? Sounds great!
\/_/ Do you know where I could download one?
