No need to purge the Debian packages.  Just prepend
path/to/the/texlive/bin/directory to $PATH.

The TeX Live installer already sais:

   Add /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf/doc/man to MANPATH, if not dynamically determined.
   Add /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf/doc/info to INFOPATH.

   Most importantly, add /usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux
   to your PATH for current and future sessions.

Maybe the word "add" should be replaced by "prepend".

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
