WHY, oh, WHY do the Lindows people stress the "10 minute reinstall?" The entire idea behind *nix is to identify and fix the problem, not reinstall to hopefully fix what was broken. Stressing the "10 minute reinstall" merely perpetuates a Windows-world viewpoint. My Ubuntu install started as a pre-Warty, and has been apt-get dist-upgraded through the various releases to the current Dapper Drake. The notion of "nuke and pave" needs to die.
