Meaning, if I download the ISO now, it will never change even if there are huge bugs, but instead will only require mandatory updates after installation if I am connected to the internet? I don't really want to perform a fresh install over my current Lucid Lynx installation yet, but I'm planning on burning the CD now so I don't have to later.

Yeah, not until they do a maintenance release, which'll be ages away probably. (Unless there's some serious security flaw I would assume)

Normal releases are, yes.
But LTS releases, no. They have periodically updated iso's: I believe 10.04.1 is out now [which is an updated version of 10.04].

I wouldn't worry about it. I have a 10.10 RC disc and it'll still update for 1.5 years even if I use it 17 months from now.

Yeah, sorry. The site was being really slow for me, and when I thought it stopped loading, I clicked the Submit New Thread button again and two threads were created.

Not a problem, stuff happens.
