This is a fantastic idea for Xubuntu. Yes, many of these should be
intuitive. Some are, but most are issues that many new people ask over
and over in #xubuntu. I am quite sure these are not all the things it
would be nice to point to, either. Let's get a list together and post
it on the It will not only be a very useful aid for
new users, but a way to draw/push those same users to the website. 

If you would like to see an item on this list, please submit it. We are
closing submissions in two weeks, which will be 2011-07-13. 

Thanks for helping make Xubuntu greater than it is!
