I might. I wonder will there be a way to uninstall or revert back to stock Honeycomb?

I've talked about this a little in the other thread, but I want to reiterate why I see it as such a problem.
If you want to get new security updates, you have to install Touchwiz.
Whether you like it or not; that's why I'm so outspoken about it. For this reason alone I have no choice but to update to Touchwiz. It's an OTA update, not a marketplace app update (which there was no reason for them not to release it as such). Because they chose to do it via OTA instead, we'll now have longer wait periods for updates - Samsung has to apply Touchwiz to all the new builds, performance hits - an arguably useful mini app tray amongst other debatable feature inclusions that will run in the background, and a worse looking UI - though this is a personal preference which like the rest of the "enhancements", should have been optional.
I don't root my devices for security reasons and with that being said, I would need the security updates as well. So yes, I will be updating to Touchwiz unfortunately.

Until there is a way to get back to stock 3.1 UI, nope.

I think I may update to TouchWiz as it looks kind of useful, especially that mini Apps tray. And the Quick Settings in the Notification Panel are really nice looking. The only thing I wonder about is if we can still use stock Music and stock Gmail. If not, then it's a no-go.

They confirmed it will be an OTA update similar to the other OTA's phones have gotten that weren't Google updates. Now that could always change, with any luck plus Samsung's update history we'll get Touchwiz a week before the devices EOL, but still.

Unless there is some compelling reason to use TouchWiz, I will most likely stick with stock Honeycomb. When it does come out, I would be interested to know if it affects device performance. Hopefully, it will be optional and we can decide for ourselves.

My biggest problem with the touchwiz UX is how they put the damn camera button on the bottom left with back/home/switcher. What is the point of that? I've had a honeycomb tablet since February and I've probably used the camera twice just to try it. I don't want to be accidentally launcher the camera all the damn time because some ***** thought it was a good idea to put a button there.Silver HTC One - unlocked bootloader and rooted

No, I probably will not install it. My only hope is that we can install future stock updates by "unofficial" means so I can avoid TouchWiz altogether (even though the mini app tray is a nice idea).
It would also be nice if Samsung supported stock updates as well but I somehow doubt that will be the case.I guess we'll see.
