My father was explaining to me a problem he was having when trying to
get my cousin from trashing a Windows computer. (Virus prone sites.) So
the point is that some aspects that the kids do should be better
prevented with the added security measure. Of course virus prevention is
not a main concern, but having the computer "owned" because of hacker
activity should be prevented.

With yum it is. It wants to remove much of your system packages. If you

[root at HP ~]# rpm -e evolution
[root at HP ~]# rpm -q evolution
package evolution is not installed
