Wouldn't a warning message when using, be better instead of removing
the application? Because now there is a problem and it is difficult to
get the thing working again (especialy for former windows users like me
;) )

Lucky i read this post because i had seen that in the menu and i
couldn't find it back. Thought I'd messed up something.

I did found the grub list, but since there is no root account you can't
edit it so you need to use the terminal with commands i don't know so i
have to read the forum to find a sollution. Ubuntu is ment to be easy
for people formerly using windows. (and i must say most of the time it
is and i realy like it) Those people don't use command lines they want
to use the mouse and *click*

The sollutions in this forum also often use the terminal with some
commands. Maybe those sollutions should also be made more *clickable*
for the newbys. probably harder for the linuxdiehards and much slower,
but for the common people that is the way they want it because they
don't know what sh ./ - a apt-get or what else is. With those
sollutions I just type the thing from the forum and stay dumb because i
don't know the commands. With *click* it is much easier to remember in
wich menu you had to change things.
