Hi, i want to install Fedora 18 64bit on a machine and already got a DVD here. This DVD is from January and i thought: Does it make sense to download Fedora 18 again to have a newer version and needing less updates? Or are the Download-Isos not updated / seldom updated anyway? That s a question i often asked me before and now it s time to search for an answer, how often these are updated and if it makes sense to always use a latest iso. Thanks in advance for any comments.

when you install Fedora, if you give network , it will install updates instead base , so will be updated at the end of installation.
