Actuall show how to generate pages in quickstart

The development server isn't really that important for quick start.

Yes it is useful but makes things complex.

The most important part is really static site generation, and it is actually hard to find how to do it in your tutorials!

Same for `hugo new`. It is automagic, and anti-thesis of things being simple. This is why I added section to make it less magic, and simply allow content to be done manually.

## Step 4: Add Some Content

You can manually create content files (for example as `content/<CATEGORY>/<FILE>.<FORMAT>`) and provide metadata in them, however you can use `new` commend to do few things for you (like add title and date):

hugo new posts/

Edit the newly created content file if you want, it will start with something like this:
