It's just ridiculous how long it takes most (all major) manufacturers to roll out the updates.
I'm so glad I don't have to deal with all that stuff.
I mean, the manufacturer ROM's still run well. They just include links to apps that you don't want. But you can remove all of it by freezing the apps if you have root. Takes 2 minutes to fix for good. I like tweaking, so it doesn't bother me. It wasn't terribly difficult to do, either. Titanium Backup Pro does it all for you.
