How do I do that?

I can't see my boot up nor nothing; it screwed up my Dell doing an upgrade. And as it turned out, I don't even like Unity, the Vista of Linux.
I will have to get the appropriate code from another computer and then, presumably, learn the command line?

How can the developers or whoever have been so bloody stupid?
It's put me off buying the magazine.
I would very much like to be nice. If this is not your day, I am sorry about that.

I keep asking myself the same question. Arrogance spring to mind.

Not their fault. They are innocent victims like the rest of us.
It's put me off trusting any software provider anywhere, ever, though. I thought the debian community had more respect for regressions. I guess the Ubuntu and Mint people thought likewise.
