Why should it be faster to install an old version and upgrade instead of installing the current version?

Even if it is 'faster' (which I doubt) its going to eat more download than just installing the version you want to run. That download will be wasted if you decide to reinstall for any reason.

You could also have more security problems from installing then upgrading to a newer version.
