I can't, as in can't, read all the documentation.  So I try to pick out the 
headings that obviously really matter, am never an early adopter, and try to 
pay close attention to what other people say.  As I say, you are lucky.

And before you say "Of course you could, if you wanted to", I can't climb 
Mount Everest either.  Not even if I wanted to.

Others are worse off than I am.  No it is not an optional extra.  But some of 
us have to do without all the same.
