I was just wondering if there is any difference in the content between Oracle Downloads and Oracle DVD Media ( Oracle 10g and up )

What I mean, is :
1. Whether the Downloads are the first release, and subsequent bug fixes and updates are only available for those who buys the license

2. Whether there are certain parts are the standard version, and the Oracle DVD Media have the enhanced / faster version, in terms of IO Speed and optimizations

3. Whether there is a scheduled reporting scheme within the Download version where it contacts and submits data about the whereabouts of the Oracle Software Installed and the statistics usage of the database

4. Whether the content within Oracle DVD Media are the more stable version, operates more efficiently

5. Are any of you guys are using the Oracle Downloads for 24x7 operations ?

Thank You,
