Windows 7: Worth installing Windows 7 SP1 RC at the moment ?

Worth installing Windows 7 SP1 RC at the moment ?

Hey I know MS released the RC version of SP1 for Win 7 Download details: Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Release Candidate (KB976932)

Just wondering If it's worth downloading or just waiting for the final version to be released ?

I've got all previous updates installed from Windows Update, would I be missing much ? Are there any performance fixes and or improvements in SP1 ?

SP1 is going to be a yawn wait for the final. There are some install problems with the RC.

Don't install an RC unless you are doing it on a test machine.

Running it here on my 64 bit laptop and no issues. But most should wait until it hit RTM before installing because it might work fine on one pc and buggy on another!

I'd wait for RTM. No obvious advantages like we had in XP SP2 for this SP1 RC.
