To me, if I was going to go back to a non-customizable OS, id go with the playbook. To me, the swiping action on an ipad is not needed...I am swiping just to see more apps? I like swiping through home screens on my xoom...if there is no "homescreen" then I'd rather have QNX.

I sold my ipad 2 for a xoom and I am very happy. Streaming 4 baseball games via mlb.tv on my xoom with flash is just amazing.
I contemplated playon, seriously contemplated it prior to selling my Xoom but I resented paying for two services and having to leave my desktop on in order to do something that SHOULD be native by now. Doesn't it tick you off a little that Android is no longer a new platform yet no one has developed a workable Netflix app yet much less HuluPlus? You are right the swiping motion is stupid on the iPad.
