I am a regular Linux (mostly Ubuntu) user, and have been for several years. I started dabbling in Linux in the early 2000's, dualbooting my desktop for a few years, and have been using Linux solely since around 2006. I am also a system administrator, and have over 20 Ubuntu servers and over a dozen Ubuntu desktops under my care.

As has been stated, all the point releases are are bundled updates for ISOs. They are just regular updates.

comment Should security updates always be installed?
@paddy landau - Yes. I am the admin for between 30 and 40 Ubuntu servers at work. EVERY time I've seen exactly 6 security updates it has been because of a kernel update.

comment WoL missing in BIOS, will it work?
Yeah, it only tells you if it's on and working, not if it's off/not-working. Some NICs don't blink on WOL traffic.
