Default so vista sp2 worth it?

So I've been wondering - is the second service pack for vista worth it?
What does it change?
I'd rather not loose my patched uxtheme.dll :~

Anyone got any better specifics?

The combine has not been forgotten

They usually are because they contain additional tweaks to system files that make things run better (usually). I think it's worth losing a patched .dll file that's not a system critical file.

Even so, patching the .dll takes only about a minute tops. So why not Download SP2, install, download the patched .dll, overwrite it. Restart, Bam, both problems solved..

right?

I still say wait until the full version is out. Not worth any bugs or incompatibility issues that it might bring. I just hope it wont go the same way it did for EU with SP1. Getting the service pack two months late, with several glitches it brought. Bad marketing.
