But the "improved UI" sucks. Well, the today screen anyways. Titanium just doesn't cut it, compared to other UIs like HTC Sense or SPB Mobile Shell 3.5+ or even the highly customizable PointUI.
Of course, that's the beauty of WinMo, that you're free to choose whichever shell/today look you like. But MS has been pushing the onus of improvements on the users for far too long. If it weren't for XDA-devs/PPCGeeks/Modaco etc, I would have never continued with WinMo. Of course, it's not just me, but even Steve Ballmer admits that they screwed up WinMo.
MS had better get their act sorted out otherwise it'll be too late.
Can WinMo 7 save the day? One can only hope.
