Hello, as I'm not seeing people considering new questions i have taken the
time to do a simple grep of the #xubuntu logs from from
09 to last week for:
How do? <>
How to? <>
What program? <>
I want to.. <>

I think that looking at this we could manage to condense a bunch of
repetitive questions that pop from time to time, if you think there is
something to add to my greps please tell me and I will add that too. Else I
will start to parse this results for the most common questions I can find.

Again, thank you all who do Xubuntu, and have a nice day. :)
