Quoting jim stockford (jim at well.com):
> yes--the phrase is "drinking from a fire hose".
That reaction is sort of like walking into the refrigerated storage
at Original Joe's on Taylor and crying out "Damn! There's no _way_
I'm going to be able to eat all of that steak."
True. You won't. But you should, nonetheless, go back you your nice
cushy booth, order a dinner, and enjoy. A few weeks later, if you feel
like it, come back with friends and try a different dish.
In other words, it's really _silly_ to be daunted by too many
distributions with too much updates. Sorry, that's just a really poor
and transparent excuse for remaining on the sidewalk, pressing your nose
against the store window. What you really want to do is just pick a
distribution (it doesn't make a huge difference which one), try it out,
and live with it for a few weeks. After a few weeks to a month of
living with its use day-to-day, if you remain curious, blow it away and
try a different one.
There's nothing wrong with just kicking the tires, but eventually you
might want to get around to the driving part.
