I hope this is not really the idea of the ubuntu developers on this 
topic, because if so, then I can really, really forget all my bugs, and 
go home happy. If the idea is that a trial-and-error process should be 
the normal way of using ubuntu (it is the way I use it every time I 
install it to other people), then just tell me. I think it's 
unbelievable how far things went in this direction. If this is 
considered normal and unharmful, there's clearly something that I didn't 
understand here.
