1) I want to download "XAMPP Windows 1.6.6a [Basic package]", but I don't understand why the "Installer" version is 34 MB and the "ZIP" version is 78 MB. Is the "Installer" version complete at 34 MB and does it contain all the features that are available in the 78 MB "ZIP" version?
I pay per MB to download files, therefore I need to know before I download because it is too expensive for me to download both files.
2) Also can you please tell me if the "advertised" download sizes on the downloads page for "XAMPP Windows 1.6.6a" are accurate? (I am asking this question becasue I abandoned my attempt to download "XAMPP Linux 1.6.6" recently via my "Windows XP Pro SP2" computer, because the "xampp-linux-1.6.6.tar" file is much bigger than the stipulated download size? The size of the incomplete download for the "xampp-linux-1.6.6.tar" file is 85.4MB on my computer, but the stated size on the downloads page for the complete download is 58 MB).
Your advice will be appreciated.
