Get my Ubuntu desktop back?


OK I am completely new to Linux and Ubuntu. But I can see I don't need MS windows. I did already crash my computer twice, not Linux's or Ubuntu's fault. I guess I'm having fun. But here's the question I was trying to setup the desktop like a server “just a home network” and used tasksel to add things turned my desktop Ubuntu into Xubuntu, and my laptop into Mutter. I was able to get Ubuntu fixed on the desktop but not the laptop. I know I can start from scratch and reinstall it, “I think” But and I just go back to the Ubuntu desktop by reloading something? I'm a slow learner. Thank you.

Hay somebody asked how to have the Ubuntu desktop with there Ubuntu netbook setup that may work the other way around. I'm not trying it. Maybe later.
