So, I'll continue here with a list of video ideas. Each one will be less
than 10 minutes, so they will be quick How-To's to get people up and
running, give them a quick synopsis on how to use a program, or some
popular examples of programs (that do their best to adhere to the Strategy
Document) to use in a certain situation. They are very basic to start, then
can get more in-depth:

   - An overview of the Xubuntu desktop
   - Connecting to your home network and the Internet
   - Browsing the Internet
   - Editing office documents
   - Reading email
   - Chatting with friends
   - Browsing local and network files
   - Adding a printer
   - Installing new software
   - Using proprietary drivers
   - Adding PPA's
   - Playing video games
   - Watching videos and music
   - Ripping CDs and DVDs
   - Burning CDs and DVDs
   - Reading and scanning PDF documents
   - Editing raster and vector graphics
   - Editing audio
   - Editing video
   - Customizing the panel and menu
   - Changing application appearance
   - Improving laptop battery performance
   - Running virtual machines
   - Developing on Linux
   - Contributing to Xubuntu
