Things you should never do

Never never ever ever alter your apt-sources.list to a new distribution and then sudo aptitude update; sudo aptitude upgrade. The smart among you will have noticed the *upgrade* rather than *dist-upgrade*. It really really breaks your computer. To the point of needing a reinstall. Which, given it was the laptop that I had such trouble installing the first place is a real pain in the arse.

Just don’t do it kids.
