Maybe I missed something, but I don't see from the article how May 10th has any credibility.
The author seems to have just made up and thrown out a random date that sounded plausible, but didn't offer anything to substantiate how he derived it.
Maybe he does actually have some inside knowledge, but I am skeptical.

Stock GB from the OTA manual install works very well!! Lots of goodies with GB and worth either waiting for or installing yourself. Haven't had any major problems. It's enough different from Froyo that you need to learn some new things, but that's the fun of it!

I am now back on Froyo and no longer experiencing any of those issues.
I did a factory wipe before installing Gingerbread.
Also remembered some more bugs:
Some apps have that blue "mask" over it and will randomly appear and disappear.
Slide to unlock is very jittery and doesn't always work.

I have not had any major problems that were Gingerbread's fault. So far, I am really glad I upgraded. I was not happy with the default GB keyboard, so I installed the trial of SwiftKey and have been pretty happy with it. I will probably purchase SwiftKey when my trial expires.

Interesting that this thread has morphed from a discussion of a prediction of the expected release date on the GB OTA of May 10th, to a general exchange about which bugs are in which operating system.
I'm perfectly fine with that, since I think the projected date was based on smoke anyway, and it's an interesting exchange, but does anybody have any actual reason to believe that they can suggest when the OTA might really start? I'm hanging on to my leaked leaked 588 version GB with root, not wanting to have to revert back to stock Froyo until the OTA becomes available.
