I didnt find this specific question. I am not asking how large the installer is (12.10 btw). And I am not asking if I can install ubuntu without the internet. I have read that I can just install via the Boot CD or USB without an internet connection.
What I would want to know is what and how much the Ubuntu installation process does download if there is an internet connection.
I assume it is updates?
I am in a hostel that hands out 300 - 1000 mb codes of free internet. So if I was going to let it use the internet I would be limited by that amount of megabytes.
Could I do those updates once I am in a new location next week?
