One thing I like in Vista is the Restore Point feature, where you can go back in time to before you borked your system.

Is there anything like that in Ubuntu? I've seen mention of making backups but it seems very complicated to an ordinary user like myself.

I use a backup tool called QuickStart, (see Sig). Its the closest thing to "sudo make everything ok again" that I have found. The link is to the Quickstart Forums, but You can also download it from there.

P.S. "sudo make everything better" doesn't work in the terminal, I've tried"

try SystemRescueCD (http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page) it contains Partimage which you can use to make a "snapshot" of your system.

Thanks!

Maybe you have to run it as root?

If you are a fan of the command line, you can also use the "dd" command which makes a bit by bit copy of your system. See the man pages for dd to see what it can do.

normally you can fix everything and don't need restore points...
