Not sure if this belongs in Installation & Upgrades or maybe General Help but since my question concerns Installing fresh, I'll pop it in here.
On the day that the "official" release of the *buntu ISO's are released people start downloading them and installing their version (GNOME, Xfce, KDE or Edubuntu, now incorporated in GNOME if memory serves me) on their machines.
And for a while the Update Manager is being used almost on a daily basis to get updates.
Day 2: 7 updates
Day 3: 4 updates
Day 4: 9 updates
Day 5: 2 updates
As per my example, if I waited until day 5 to download and install the ISO I'd be looking at 22 updates.
So my question is:
At some point is the current ISO changed to included these updates or does it remain the same ISO and the number of updates increases with the amount of time a person waits to get the new release?
I'm going to get 8.04, of that there is no doubt, but I'm wondering if there would be less "updates" if I wait say, a month and have the 30 days of updates incorporated into the ISO I download.
If there is no change, I may as well get it now and just wait until I upgrade my MOBO, CPU and Memory before installing.
I'm going for 4 ISO's:
Ubuntu Live CD & Alt CD
Xubuntu Live CD and Alt CD
Thanks for your time.
Have a nice day.
