This has been discussed before, but I want to raise the issue of the Joomla sample data again. Think back to when you first learnt Joomla. Assuming you started with the Joomla sample data, did you find this approach helpful or not? That is was it easiest to add-on to the existing sample data, or would you have preferred to start with an empty site and learn how to build it up from nothing? Please complete the poll below and feel free comment too.
