As long as they never release a software that will have a hardware requirment that is higher then what our EVO's have, then they should continue to get the software updatesPersonal: Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE, Nexus 7 16gb tablet

For me i get a ton of random reboots, my launchers work at best half the time, I lose GPS every 2 or 3 days and have to boot into a sense rom to do the GPS fix and there's still no HDMI last time I tried it. Also I love the sense Clock(not widget but the actual clock app). Also while most HTC apps can be easily replaced 3rd party, there are some(such as the clock application) that can't be. The videos dont look as good when recorded either. As a whole, CM7 is just buggy. Which they know, that's why its an RC and not a Final. They are doing good work but as yet, they haven't performed as well as Warm or Evi or many other HTC-Based roms. They are nearly there tho.

Well, that is definitely a "to each his own" situation. Mine works great, and I much prefer "vanilla" to Sense, so to me it's not as big a deal. Preferences are just that, preferences, and that's what the choice on Android as all about.

Its not about sense, I dont use Sense either. But the ASOP roms are for lack of a better term "Reverse Engineered" to work on each device. Google doesn't have access to the sorid details of HTCs hardware, so Stock Android won't "just work" on those devices. It has to be ported which is done by the CM and MIUI people. But in a lot of cases the HTC just functions better and has less bugs, until the CM/MIUI/etc guys get done squashing the bugs.
I run a sense-based ROM because it is the only type of rom that was built by HTC themselves, and it doesn't have the hardware issues(like no HDMI or barely ever GPS or poor video recording quality). I don't use the sense launcher. I use Launcher Pro. My phone is insanely stable and I never have to worry about if my GPS is gonna work when I need it(its a long and painful process to do "The Fix" like 15+ minutes). And I don't have to worry about my Videos staggering or looking like crap. Or not having HDMI. Its a trade off, but for a lot of people like me, Gingerbread just isn't that much better than Froyo, and the differences don't outweigh those drawbacks for the newest ASOP roms.
I'm not knocking the CM guys they do amazing work. I just need my phone to work like it's supposed to.
