    What do I have to know about them?

    Is it good to install them all of them all the time? They fix problems without causing new problems?

    Give me the url where I can download them.

    How can I install them? Just run them?

    Are they standalone self-installed or is it better to purchase someway a whole copy of the new version?

    Does an update means that the osx gets a new prefix? 10.4.8, 10.4.9 etc. Or they are standalone patches?

    From the blue Apple menu, select "Software Update." This will check for, download, and install any updates relating to Apple Software for you.

    For the most part, it's good to install all of the updates, but some users like to wait a few days to make sure all of the bugs have been worked out.

    If it's an OS update, the OS version number will change, but other updates (such as security updates), it won't. In some cases only the application version number will change (like iTunes).
