Who knows what you might break? Or how you might break it? Your scope is very wide and could result in a tome bigger than the Epic of Gilgamesh. I can only recommend that you research and read. Following posts in the forum is always a good place to start.

Breaking stuff and reinstalling the OS is a good way to learn more about Linux. Most of us have been there and done that. Some of us still do it! :lol: Just remember to back up what's important to you before you experiment. Oh, and reading The Epic of Gilgamesh won't hurt you either. :wink:
