It's all about "which is quicker: reinstall or fix".  I was playing
with using sound input as an lirc input on ubuntu and managed to hose
my alsa on a laptop.  After 20 minutes of trying to fix it (including
uninstalling and reinstalling alsa) I finally just wiped... it was a
dev laptop and took 30 minutes to reinstall and have it working.

You can always fix windows without reinstalling as well... but is it
worth the time?
