O I think they care just not about us.

They Care about selling new phones and Contracts that is all

I think they want us to be unhappy that = New phone sale at full Price or ETF $$$$$

Zero bugs?  There is no such device.  I came from BlackBerry, they have bugs.  My friends with Iphones have bugs, and my friends with Androids have bugs.  Does Froyo have a few, yes.  Does Eclair have them, yes.  And will Gingerbread,Honeycomb, and future OS's have them?  YES THEY WILL...............

 

I agree with other posters.  Froyo runs well enough on the Fascinate for release.  The best testers in the world are the users. As problems occur patches can be developed.

 

I think they are more underlying reasons it hasn't been released.

SFObrien has a point. The numbers of requests for help to deal with bugs in any single version of custom ROM really doesn't really seem higher than the requests here dealing with bugs in the corporate ROM.

 

The only real difference is at xda often you can actually communicate with the dev who wrote the ROM.
