I reported my multitasking issues to HTC and exchanged emails with Danielle. I have every reason to believe the problem will be fixed in an update. Here is her last response:

I appreciate you sending another email after walking through the recommendations from the previous reply. I realize that you want the multitasking to work a certain way on your Android device. I understand that we have this issue under analysis and continue to investigate the cause of this situation. Unfortunately, I do not have any information about an estimated time for an update at this time. I would suggest that you keep an eye on the HTC regional website at www.htc.com/US for any further developments. I thank you for your input concerning this issue.

I would bet anything that the developers around here fix out problems way before HTC gets around to it. I can't wait until CM9 is fully functional for us.

It's fine that the phone isnt "exactly" how some (most) people want it, it's even fine if the phone comes programmed to work like that. What isnt fine is that there is no way to change it. They dont have to admit they are wrong, just add a setting to allow people to chang it (put it in developer options and add a disclaimer). Boom, problem solved.

It sounds to me like they haven't even admitted it's broken yet.

They haven't. His Email response was not much different than the one I got, nor the conversation on the phone with HTC. They know VERY WELL that developers and "enthusiasts" (as they call us in-the-know users) are very displeased. But that isn't necessarily going to be enough.

And this isn't a black-and-white issue. There are lots of variables and tradeoffs with memory management and multitasking. It isn't just "broken" or "fixed", just various degrees of difference. I do think they will address/improve the situation, but I also think it will not be what we might think of as a total "fix". Just pure speculation...

I could not agree with you more. I have always been a champion of USER CONTROL. Don't dictate how my device is going to look, act, work. Give me choices so I can decide for myself how I want it to operate. If necessary, set the defaults however you (the company) want and even hide the options to change them. But it is always better to have options than none.

This goes way beyond just phones, of course.
