Yes... erm, is that intended as a rhetorical question, explaining why you'd started with that advice?
Of course. But an appreciation of what they all do (and why), so "most people"* can make a considered decision what to install (and what not), would be a good idea.You do appreciate that most people out here don't just have ALL packages installed, as a matter of course
* I would normally take issue whether any individual can know what "most people" do or don't do, but in this case this is a reasonable assessment because some packages are mutually exclusive, and it would be tedious to go through the list and install everything willy nilly.
