My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

comment x11 Remote Desktop with Ubuntu 12.04
Just out of curiousity: did you try with gnome-session --session=ubuntu2d (that should also call unity-2d-panel if installed)

@KyleEbinger: You should be able to use this System Repair Disk for restoring the MBR. If not, then you won't need a licence to repair your system. Any Windows installation CD/DVD or Recovery CD/DVD will do the job, just take care they have the same architecture (32/64 bit).
