I'll have water. Thanks.
Are you sure? It's good to drink a good beer with your friends once in a while.
Firewater is not for everyone
Being of part Native American heritage I second Mareks' choice to avoid alcohol. I do NOT advocate cops and jails harassing people for drinking, I just don't drink.

Zeitgeist is an event registering framework. Apps can opt in to it and it will register certain events which can then be acted upon. It's pretty powerful, but isn't seeing as much use as I'd like.

I love the security argument. It's not really related or even relevant. Less symbols is just more obscurity. The fact that many of the symbols are stupidly named and not suited for public consumption means that people need to go fix the symbol naming... But security is a good argument, as it is not something anyone can truly fight against, you cannot publicly claim to be against "more security".

People still complain about size constraints? Are we talking about Puppy? Cause I didn't get the Ubuntu maintainer's decision to not include VCE and UVD code in 14.04 over size constraints. The .iso is already over 700Mb, once you pass 700Mb your next target size is 4Gb, because that will easily fit on either a single layer DVD or on a cheapo 4Gb USB stick.
As to the Mega driver, if it can get more new features included in distros sooner then that is a huge gain over having to wait 9 months for new code to get into your 6 month distro of choice without having to go bleeding edge for everything.
