Maybe i'm wrong. But all i know ubuntu doesnt have "time machine" or "system restore" like tool. You can not revert all update that you have installed. About ur netbeans you can remove using terminal with command: sudo apt-get remove netbeans or apt-get purge netbeans

I'm very aware of none of the operating systems doesn' have time machine but since i know windows has system restore tools, i think it's still worth to ask if someone know a way out. As for to removing netbeans, i think you should be more specific like i do. I have 2 different netbeans with two different version numbers. How am i suppose to know sudo apt-get remove netbeans won't remove the one that i need?? –  Timur Aykut YILDIRIM Feb 20 '13 at 8:58
