This is a text-mode login screen. It appears in one of the following
* you (accidentally?) press Ctrl+Alt+F1
* you install Ubuntu Server and not Ubuntu Desktop
* there's some bug related to graphics drivers which makes the GUI
unable to start up
Actually, I don't even know if the 3rd option is possible -- IIRC
there's a different screen, warning you about the error and suggesting
options like starting in safe graphics mode. It's been a while since I
saw one of those.
Anyway, try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 or Alt+Right several times to get back
to the GUI.
Experience varies directly with equipment ruined.
