There are a few quirks but I agree. With OS2008 it is like a whole new
(and better) device.
Everything is blazing fast compared to OS2007 and there doesn't seem
to be any glaring brokenness.
A little bit of overclocking goes a long way :]

The new transparent UI looks great and dragging things around on the
desktop is a breeze.
Photo viewing (with automatic aspect portrait/landscape adjustment) is snappy.
Much smoother media/flash viewing.
Much more standard infrastructure so that you can cross-compile easier.
I love rtcomm and how it integrates all the IM/VoIP under one app.
The mozilla-based browser works very well.

Pretty spectacular guys ... well worth the wait.
Two thumbs up!

I'll keep digging and bugzilla things as I find them ... but it is not
easy work anymore ;]
