I wish I could un-see that second one.  I'm completely baffled as to 
what "startup software" is (I'd imagine that would be the bootloader, 
kernel, systemd, all systemd/init scripts, and in Ubuntu's case X11 as 
well, along with everything in /bin and /sbin and /lib according to how 
Unix systems are lain out--everything required for system start-up 
belongs there, while everything not required for system start-up goes 
into /usr/)

tbh repair systems are a good idea, but they belong in their own place.  
Don't care for "Here is a dialog to configure X system aspect.  Also if 
your system is broken you can fix this part from here."  Where is the 
"Troubleshoot my system" dialog?

Anyway, off-topic.
