The BDLL Distro Challenge

The BDLL Distro challenge consists of selecting a Linux distribution for testing and review by the Big Daddy Linux community. On occasion, a desktop environment or software package is tested instead. We aim to try any significant update or release or just anything that we think is interesting. If you have a suggestion, please let us know during the show or at any time by filling out the form below, via Telegram or visiting the Discourse forum.


Below is the list of challenges along with dates and links to the YouTube videos.
