Do you plough through everything on your computer and try to find a use
for it.  Or do you use your computer to do what you want, and look for
something to fulfill your needs as you go along?

I'd sooner have a good list of available programs with detailed
information about them, then several gigs of stuff installed that'll
involve many megs/gigs of keeping up to date, even if I'm not using
them.
