+1 Sined. It is the driver hints that is the only concern to the devs right now.
As for the general public not knowing better Drifter, very true. And if they are happy with the status quo then great. Good for them and good for you. But we don't all use devices exactly the same. My own children kept complaining about the official 1.5. I had wanted to keep them stock but months go by so I finally put 2.1 on theirs and they are happy little geekettes now. I'd never had been able to get them started on devel if they had to put up with poor performance. These aren't just simple phones that happen to do fart apps.
