Default Time to play the Game...The blame game

Who is the blame for our update being obviously delayed? I for one am pointing at both companies. I do believe HTC made good except 4.03 is unacceptable especially assuming this will be the last update for Thunderbolt. I would like the latest and greatest ICS update,4.04. I know beggers can't be choosy,Right? If Verizon sent said update back because it wasn't the latest and greatest 4.04, I don't blame them the least. On the other hand if Verizon is bloating it up with crappy apps and f$c%ed up restrictions,(not being able to delete crappy bloatware,courtesy of Sense 3.6) then I have a big problem with that. Going back in time HTC merely vowed, Thunderbolt would never see Sense 3.0. Basically for the same reasons it can't see Sense 4.0. Handling issues. Yet they claim 3.6 is coming with ICS. This reminds me of my T-mobile days. Motorola Cliqxt as it pertains to receiving 2.1. not sure if it ever happened, but I waited and waited, then eventually moved on to the 3g slide my touch. Made by HTC. It was to be updated to 2.2, all the other mytouch phones and variants received it except for the 3g slide, even the very first mytouch device received 2.2. Much later the 3g slide received it ,but not OTA, you had to do like the Desire S and get it from website. I am hoping Thunderbolt said update does not go any of those ways. I mentioned Moto and HTC. I'd be a fool not to throw Sammy in the Picture. For those that know or heard. Remember Samsung's Behold 2? Who do you blame??? Enough said...

I'd almost rather see the TB no longer be supported and HTC release whatever source code it needed to so those of us who like AOSP, CM, etc, could still get our fix

VZW. They can't even release AOSP JB to the Gnex.
