Firstly, my desktop had it's first non-hardware-related reboot in years, due to SVGAlib messing with the display. They put "Warning: this will almost certainly mess up your display and require a reboot" in the docs, but not on the front of every app that uses it

Then I found that in the process of upgrading to breezy, X had gone -- the two core parts of it had been marked mutually exclusive. Also, the font paths mysteriously needed changing. For the first time in memory, linux's "warning: do not use this software, it is not ready, and is guaranteed to break something" has been less stable than windows' "finished, bug-free, ready for business use" :O
