Whats the difference between installing this, which was released Dec 14 and installing a daily build which is current as of Jan 7? Which would be better to install as in the lease amount of errors/bugs.

Flight CD should be reasonably free of showstoppers. Meaning that if you grab the nightly build, you might be able to install it, but it might wreck everything you have. With the flight CD there is actually a possibility that you will end up with an installation - although a buggy one :)

I'd go for the flight CD to install, and then use Synaptic to dist-upgrade to the nightly build, if I wanted to upgrade.
