[DOCS] Revamp Elasticsearch getting started topic #43721
Although 71 contributors have made updates to getting-started.asciidoc over the last 5 years, its overall content and structure haven't changed much since it was first written. In Elastic years, 5 years is a very long time.
I'm proposing to tear it apart and rebuild it to be... Better...stronger...faster.
Get folks who are new to Elasticsearch up, running, and trying things out so they can see how Elasticsearch works.
If you have a general sense of what Elasticsearch is and the inclination to start tinkering, this topic will help you do that.
What it is...and isn't
It's a lightweight, easy-to-follow, hands-on tutorial for new users. It isn't a comprehensive set up guide and doesn't need to teach users how to "do it all". It isn't about how to use Elasticsearch for a particular purpose, it's intended to help users understand how Elasticsearch works and highlight the characteristics that make it suitable for a variety of use cases.
What needs to be done
You may be able to mine https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/pull/40903/files#diff-d9b40c6d43a0f89c103f76bab86b647c for some content.
The only thing missing would be an agg example.
