What is the purpose of the beginner tutorials? I'm following them but I'm not sure what I am doing or why.

This is where I am and I am sort of familiar with linux, I managed to install a few different distros to this machine. I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial), Kinetic Kame ROS, and trying to get Gazebo working.

Its just not clear to me why I have to do all of this... I'd like to jump right into building robotics simulations.
