I just want to be sure before I install R2 SP1, that no one has had any problems.  Your opinions will be important.

yes there are known issues but you have not given us a description of the gear you have there for example if you have Citrix you might be affected by this:

I'll read the link.  Not putting it on Citrix.  The servers I'm considering are either HP or Dell.

Well there are known issues with any Windows based system this is just the nature of the beast. Now in SP1 there lots of fixes and some enhancements that are better Windows 2008 Server R2 without the SP installed.

So, basically there are always issues but usually there are ways to fix the issues if any crop up but SP1 has fixes and enhancements that should be installed.
