Never install delta updates, always go for combo and NEVER install hackware on your computer; you'd think that after the initial 10.5 'blue screen' fiasco that people would learn - but it seems that there are people out there who are suckers for punishment by ignoring all conventional wisdom.


Not using combos is not a "conventional wisdom" only FUD. My six Macs all update via deltas and I did not have any problems since 2002. If the system is in a good condition, delta updates work just fine.
Only if Apple decides to switch default rights for users between major versions of OS X (e.g. 10.3->10.4 or 10.4->10.5) you can run into trouble if you update. But this is not a delta vs combo issue.
