Same way as on Windows--by running the uninstaller (if it has one). And
just like on Windows, there's several ways to run it:

- If the program created a shortcut to the uninstaller, you can run that.
- Otherwise, you can use Wine's "Add/Remove Programs" Control Panel
(it's similar to Windows' own "Add/Remove Programs"). Just run the Wine
Control Panel like so from the command line:

 wine control

and open the "Add/Remove Programs" applet.

But be warned: some uninstallers don't work fully yet in Wine. You may
have to remove stuff manually.
