Installed it on my brother's computer without any issues. Took about 45 minutes. Increased speed on network and USB device transfers would be the most noticable performance increase. Startup/Shutdown times improved slightly, but nothing that you'd notice without a stopwatch. Neither one was ever really a problem, though. Small increase in 3DMark06 score (Forget exact score, but it improved by less than 50 points). I haven't noticed any improvement in compatibility, reliability, or stability, although none of those were ever an issue.
I don't think I'm going to be doing my computers yet just because:
1) I'm selling my gaming PC this weekend and I'm going to have to reformat it w/ XP, anyways (that's what the buyer wants).
2) My iMac is not using a legal copy of Vista and I don't want to screw it up.
3) I want to back everything up off my media center to DVD before I install SP1 on it and lord knows that's going to be a big ass job (2+ Terabytes).
