I didn't use GB on it much before upgrading to HC but I'm very happy with the View with HC. Haven't noticed any slowness anywhere and it's nice to have the scribe do more. Other people complain about the screen real estate but it's find for me. You loose a strip at the bottom but you get more content on the homescreens except for I guess some of the widgets aren't optimal. I like the status format and the task switching and also the app drawer changes. There are two less homescreens and it doesn't go all the way around but I'm mostly just using two screens. I am using Folder Organizer to manage apps on my homescreen. I use that on my phone as well. Count me in the happy side of the list.
I regretted it so much that I had it reverted back to Gingerbread. Best decision I ever made was nuking Honeycomb in the butt! My #1 compaint is that the backlit "home, settings, back" were removed and place on the screen. I couldn't find anything good about Honeycomb.
