It's worth bearing in mind a couple of things.
- The range of platforms and environments that Oracle runs on, using essentially the same install process for a mainframe as your laptop
- Even Microsoft as authors of the OS don't provide a database that uninstalls all parts of itself reliably from their own OS.
- Oracle do provide a document showing you how to do this.
In all I think you've probably got your money's worth.
