I have found that the install on the official CDs is much safer than than install with the community edition.
For example with the community edition, even after all the updates, I had to uninstall cups and reinstall it to get it to work with my printer.
With the community CDs I have seen problems after manually adding and subtracting packages to install during installation. If I only added or subtracted main groups of programs, things went smoothly, but If I went in and started adding and subtracting individual packages, it would cause problems.
Also, updates for the community edition frequently broke things and so far updates with the official edition have been rock solid. Maybe they are lined out for community now, but why bother to find out?
