But they do care! They think they (or rather I) have gone and broken
the computer! Especially when a red line with the words [Fail] are
picked out (even though it's just a message relating to a lack of
RAID). This sorta thing scares people and puts them off straight away.
We want to attract people, not put them off Ubuntu.

(Thinking about this one actually made me realise, at least at my uni,
all the computers are already switched on, and unless 2000 messes up,
you never boot the computer up.)
