Windows 7: Is installing service pack 1 really that important?

Aside from some initial problems loading SP1 from Windows Update, i think most people have few problems, nor notice any performance change whatsoever from installing service pack 1.

Consider this, with prior releases of Windows...some people would NOT install or use the operating system until Service Pack 1 was released. It was like this with Vista and XP.
