@brian1984: you will probably hear more bad than good about ICS. But that's what internet forums are like. People are (in general) quicker to come to forum and complain, than to applaud a product. I would go a head and do the ICS update, I don't have a ton of apps on my a500, but I do need it to work for me. I did the update with out a second thought. I did had to do a complete reset, and reload a few apps. My biggest concern was being able use Quick books. It works fine, and the Gmail is better too.
