Well, if you are experiencing any of the problems the fixlist lists, then update. Make sure there is no chance of eletrical failure or surge while it processes the update.
If you're not having those troubles (yet?), then you don't have to update (yet.) And propably shouldn't. Agreed, pros? :)

Well. It's just not worth it, and the new version may cause trouble plus if the computer happens to freeze or lose power while updating, your motherboard will be usable. Period. And you don't want to buy a new motherboard just because you wanted to make a useless update, right?
