I call BS on your 'SP3 hosed my machine' claim.

With the SP3 RC2 Refresh I had a BSOD caused by GDI32.dll on each startup (caused by the nVidia graphics drivers according to what I read about it). If you have automatic restart enabled it will look like the system is destroyed.

All that I needed to do to fix it was pop in the install disc and copy the SP2 file (that is backed up when you install) over the top of the SP3 one and all is fine. Obviously it is a problem, but it is pre-release software so I'm not going to attack Microsoft for it (or nVidia). A fix was already available IIRC when I experienced it.

I haven't noticed much difference with SP3, but I'm sure it saved me a lot of updates to SP2 on a fresh install.
