I manage to try it on my work mobile workstation and i have to say, the given improvements in SP2 for Vista isnt really noticeable except for some what you have listed. Yes, it does improve some hardware compatibility but not its kernel, memory usage optimization.

The mobile workstation, Dell Percision M6400 comes with Vista Ultimate x64 perinstalled and have Photoshop CS4, Dreamweaver CS4, Maya 2009 SP1, zBrush 3.1, The Foundry Nuke 5.1v composition software installed. Laptop is new as in 2 weeks old.

As usual, it boots with nearly a gig of memory but the stability is much better than SP1 which it should. File transfer have a much better speed but on network transfer, i felt that its still the same (sorry couldnt give a much precise benchmark due to lack of tools).

Seeing that Windows 7 is in the make, i would say the SP2 is more like a vanilla fill up in your ice cream bowl till the king of the hill comes in, Windows 7, or a fix for those who have yet to made the bleeding edge change to Windows 7.
