Not really, they suck. Borked my windows install too, and my windows installer disk is bad (i had a bad burn before a good one, and i think i kept the wrong one), so thank god for ubuntu. Just grabbed my files, and its syncing to dropbox.
Unity is still shit
Holy fuck does FF suck these days
Good thing we have XFCE and MATE for desktops.
FF does suck. Chrome good.
