But this goes back to my point: my OG Droid stock with Froyo is a disaster. It should work right out of the box without me having to root it.
If Froyo did that, then it's not Android that's the problem, your phone is too slow. Would you blame MS for releasing a new Windows version that runs slowly on old computers?
