As for calling names... well I called us all fools, including myself, in my "personal growth" message.
I learned a long time ago, that the emotion in letters ("letters?... oh crap, I'm dating myself!)... OK, the emotion in text is 25% wording and 75% the attitude/assumptions of the reader.
If words are read with a grimace, they seem hostile. If the same words are read with a smile, they are totally cool. Everyone should read with a smile.

Both my Xoom's run like a champ! Very happy in the direction the updates are taking the Xoom.
you are very correct that 75% is the the assumption of the reader
For a positive note, I am starting to feel more and more satisfied the more I use 3.1...a huge improvement....it's only a sign of better things coming this way

I don't see much lag, usually running the browser, streaming radio, a game or two, weather widget, calendar/email. 3.1 feels like the overall experience is a little more stable. thumbs up here. I do feel the need to shutdown/restart the device about once a week, it slows down a little bit after a while.

Sorry but I disagree, I have a Xoom running 3.0 and I have yet to see ANY lag at all. The ONE single thing I don't like about it, and it's not the Xoom's fault, is that a lot of the apps I love aren't optimized for Android 3.0 and tablets.
If you really are getting lag, there is a cause, maybe hardware fault, an app you installed, I dunno but there is something.
@sonofdroid I have to agree iOS is the single most boring OS since DOS, and it's the one thing that might de-rail Apple's current success.

I never noticed the scroll Lag...but the browser lag when you type should have been top priority. I can't believe that wasn't fixed in the update...
It still behaved that way after a hard reset. I ended up exchanging it and my new device is the same

The 3.1 update was a gift from above, it fixed many issues I was having with my xoom. The only thing they left out is the desktop browser client issue. If your xoom is lagging its obviously an app that has crappy memory management or that is not honeycomb optimized. If you are really having alot of lag issue, take the time and email all the app developers through the market to please ask them to optimize your apps that currently are not yet optimized for tablets. I have done this and have got great responses from most of them the more we ask the faster developers will update their apps!

I dont' understand how some people have "lag" and some don't.
In the first few pages, a fellow member pointed out that its a know fact that 3 out of the 4 screens of view have the frame-rate cut in half.
This would definitely result in perceived stutter since you are essentially seeing half the frequency you have been seeing before.
Maybe ya'll never played around with an Ipad to see how smooth it was and don't have a baseline to compare it to. I would also think my xoom is near perfect if I hadn't owned an Ipad 2 previously.
So maybe this lag is perceived because I have toyed around with other tablets...who knows....I'm just hoping for the next update to come soon
