I do like that HTC is pushing the release of new Android builds, hopefully the competition(like Motorola) will react appropriately. HTC took 60ish days to release Froyo with Sense over it. Pretty quick IMO.
Since the Droid 2 releases with Froyo, the X can't be far behind. The phones are similar enough internally that it shouldn't be that much of stretch.*fingers crossed*

I have absolutely zero Froyo envy right now, after modding the EVO forums the last few days. Issue after issue after issue is being reported. Skim over some of the recent threads being opened, and also take a look at the first few posts of this issues thread. That said, the main performance and battery life issues are directly connected to task killers, and the fact that Froyo is apparently no longer compatible with them.
Edit: Also, hard resets and unrooting appear to be essential to success.
We need to make mental notes of these things before we update, so it's great the EVO'ers get to go before us I am learning a lot from them.

With my rooted Droid 1, I installed flash but seemed like I didn't have much of a need for it with the sites I visit. The market is much improved as you can update all at once and the comments section has a separate tab when you are looking at the app description. Speed was considerably increased with froyo. With a stock Droid, that was a huge improvement. With the X it won't be such a big deal. That's about it.

I have done my fair share of said "Bleeding" with new technology over the years (with or without a choice). All I can say is let others get the bumps, lumps, bruises and do the bleeding.
If it takes until "late summer" for Froyo for the X to come out and it causes little/no bumps, lumps, bruises or bleeding I am all for that. If after waiting those weeks and there is still a lot of bloodshed by X owners then Google, Moto and Verzion had better be prepared to take their fair share of lumps and do some bleeding.
Time will tell how this plays out so stay tuned.

What do you mean by hard resets? Like daily? Cause that would be disappointing. After the recent update I had all the issues people talked about, but I did a factory reset and it cleared everything up. Perhaps that is the cure?

I have two friends (don't know each other), who live in different states. One works at a store in MI (GO BLUE!) the other is in TN and is a supervisor in technical support. I contacted both of them in regards to my rebooting issue and what I should do and they both said to wait for the Froyo update because it was being scheduled to start being released in the next week. Who knows...

That said, Froyo is a major update, and the quantities of people I'm seeing having serious issues, without doing a hard reset, is much larger than I've ever seen in these forums. The main thing that makes people resistant - which I can understand - is the thought of having to set everything back up again. But it really isn't that hard.
