Did something stupid as root and completely bricked my laptop. Really seeing the engineering from System76 pay off as I recovered my OS is less than a minute using the recovery wizard.

I've never recovered from this big of a fuck up so fast before on Linux. I'm having to reinstall a few things, but I lost absolutely nothing.

@nearhat You get lesser specs for more money, but having S76 engineer the laptop, bootloader, and OS makes it worth it. Everything works.

One typo in an installer script, and I completely wiped out a system directory when uninstalling a program. Didn't realize it until weird things started happening, and a reboot revealed that I had rm'd way more than the program I was trying to delete.

I just rebooted, held the spacebar, clicked "Refresh Pop OS", and I was back in in about 60 seconds.
