I always hope that service packs just don't make things slower, or break things which work fine at the moment.

When I upgraded from XP SP1 to SP2 some of my games experienced real problems, some just suffered worse performance.

XP SP2 was a major upgrade to the OS. These days Microsoft doesn't make major changes in SP's any more, they save that for new OS releases. So SP's for Vista and 7 have/will be update rollups, some minor new features, but no new major architecture changes (like XP SP2 did).

sp2 was what it was because Gates put the "we are focusing on security above all else" message out in the world (which was a good thing) based on all the hacks and attacks that MS was in the limelight for at the time.

If something similar happened again with their current OS, rest assured MS would make a major release SP if needed.

Overall though there is no need to unless the situation dictates it.
