comment “module load” command does not work
module is a tool used to change tool and libs version from one to the other, much like virtualenv is to python, but instead it changes your paths and variables to reflect other setups, eg: module load gcc-4.8 will load gcc-4.8, module load gcc-4.7 will load 4.7, etc

comment How to add a key to an empty schema?
Yes that is all true and relevant, even for the zillions of tools that are common to all the Linux distros out there, but org.cinnamon.keybindings.custom-keybindings is Mint specific and does not exist in Ubuntu.

comment Will KDE and GTK compatible software work in Xubuntu (XFCE)?
The same libs will be used after installation, so it will not be multiples of the library. Only one installation by package.

Do us a favour and using the livecd try the same (after waiting for a bit and if it does not work), also look for the disk utility on the dash and selecting the disk in question do a smart test please.

This looks like a bug on the launcher, it might be better of reported in launchpad instead of here.

This is not true, after installing the ssh server the configuration file is not empty and you do not need to write everything by hand, it comes pre-configured!

comment Why Linux doesn't provide break-point Recovery to restore system to previous safe State?
@Winn dont take it personally, I know its complicated as anything else to learn something new :) Its just that people are so focused on sorting out the hardships of "other software" that sometimes they forget how easy it can be if you only try to understand what you are doing.

comment Why Linux doesn't provide break-point Recovery to restore system to previous safe State?
@Rinzwind :) but I think the OP is looking for something less "scheduled" and more like a restore point for each action (like Windows does when you install anything, or press a button, or boot, or remove stuffs, or even think about your computer when on vacation while having mojitos, or think about apple pie... restore points! Restore points everywhere!)

But of-course, I am assuming on the "create a restore point because I am installing winrar and that might break my system" feature in windows correct? I will add an edit to the answer.

@Winn there are graphical backup tools, thats all you need. You do not need a rigid "restore my system to x in time" when simple backup tools already do that. What you need to actually do is have a look at the file system structure of a linux installation, once you realized that all you need to do is backup a few folders and nothing else you will loose the need to have such rigid tools, maybe that is the reason there was never much interest to develop such thing for Linux :)
