No, although I deleted some files that I wasn't sure what they were, 
after the fact - to make space to save what I was working on.  (they 
were things in /tmp and I think they were download log files or 
something like that).  I assumed that they would not allow me to delete 
them if they were needed, ie I assumed that they would have root 
privileges if they were essential.
