Clearly the majority of iPhone owners don't jailbreak. I've done it before, but have no interest to do so now. I can see why some want too, but for me widgets and customization is the least thing that I have a desire to do. Those cutesy things are cool for a week, then I usually turn them off because they usually impact battery life.
It's going to be a decent upgrade, but nothing that will blow anyones socks off. I think far too many times people think that when these upgrades come they must blow us alway and includes tons of new features. Sometimes many of the new features are in the API's and backend, so you don't see anything. One the primary things that Apple works on is stability, stability, stability. Each beta release comes with specific areas to sure up and insure it works properly.
I do however think that maps are going to be disappointing for most users because lets face it. Google's maps are very mature and they have spent millions and lots of years on their mapping project. Apple is way behind and has lots of work to do. They will drop several billion on this project over time though and eventually get there.
There are lots of little changes in this update that will improve the user experience, but again if you are one of those looking to have your socks knocked off, Good luck with that!
By the way Siri can launch 3rd party apps and interact with them. Just sayin'
