There are some system fixes in those updates but they are mostly related to Admin and server issues. The important updates are Security!!!!!!!!!! last year alone, Microsoft had to deal with over 5000 sercurity threats and fixes!!! Just get the updates and practice safe interneting (no condoms required).

I install sp2 and never update. I use advance 3 rd party sources for protection. sometime updating slows your computer up
