Hi Team,

I watched the distro challenge by Big Daddy Linux Live for Xubuntu 19.10
<> and made notes of the various
issues that they brought up and wanted to share it with you with time
stamps so its easy to get to the particular issue that was mentioned
without having to watch the entire 1 hour of discussion. But there was no
surprise that the top issue was the Super key.
