There really is no need to wipe the hard drive. Either keep running the installed OS or simply install another, choosing to wipe the drive during installation. That said, as someone who has tried about a dozen distros, Ubuntu will be a lot easier to set up and use for a beginner.

Ubuntu does not work like Windows In Windows, a program comes with pretty much all the files it needs. In Ubuntu, a program uses a lot of common files. These are called dependencies. These common files are downloaded once and used by all the programs that need them. (This is one of the reason why Ubuntu does not install all the files in a single folder. It ...

You simply open the System settings from the top right corner of the screen, then click on Software updates -> Other drivers, and choose Nouveau instead of Nvidia.

From what you write, I think you did not actually deinstall or break any installed packages. in case you did indeed, sudo debsums -c will help you to find the changes - see What is the apt equivalent to "rpm -V" (Verify installed packages).

I would not recommend using those instructions, as they are incorrect (the sed -i command doesn't even exists). Both apt-get remove --purge and synaptic do what you need (in fact, synaptic is based on apt-get), the main difference is that synaptic uses a graphical interface, including a search tool both for installed and uninstalled packages. If you are ...

Your answer is simply how apt-get autoremove works. autoremove simply removes every package that was installed as a dependecy, and is no longer required, e.g. the package that depended on it was removed. It's nothing to worry about, if you encounter any dependecy problems, run this: sudo apt-get install -f and you'll probably be OK.
