That is silly. The primary difference is that certain bugfix patches have been applied.  A side-effect of this "first patched" status is that unintentional bugs may have been introduced, so unless you have already encountered a bug that was patched there then you are likely better off sticking with the standard release. That said, I have had no qualms about using a patched version when I encountered a bug that got fixed.
