Ok for me. Went from 10.4 to 10.4.2 nothing much different except for the Widget manager thing.

OS X now comes standard on DVD , since your title suggests that you are looking for the cd version please follow this link to http://images.apple.com/macosx/pdf/tigermediaexchangev3.pdf which you can fill out and get the CD version. As to 10.4.2 once you have Tiger installed as mentioned above 10.4.2 is a free upgraded via the web.

Only if you plan on buying a new computer with a major update released after 10.4.2 -- then there is a good chance that computer will have a copy of the latest OS X version on it's System Restore DVD.

Of course these machines will also fail to work with the OS X Update released prior to its release. Thus a machine requiring Mac OS X v 10.4.3 won't work with the 10.4 retail box -- and you'll need the System Restore DVD or the next OS release 10.5.

Apple usually ships one version of the retail box, unless there is a severe problem requiring a recall of the boxes.

System Restore DVDs get updated, the retail box -- not.

Is it worth updating to 10.4.2? I am still at 10.4 and havent updated yet. Is there any problems/bugs with the updates? Is there much difference? Thanks.

Well there is a serious flaw that lets widgets execute malicious code... not to mention countless other updates and bug fixes. I would update if I were you.
