    everything is slower when you try to open any application, the 802.1x authentication take lot of time, and the VPN is noticeably slower, the only plus is they have now the VPN logo alongside the wifi icon, the calendars looked now much closer to ical with different calendars to choose from, contact is now arranged alphabetically but the speed is noticeably slow....and the shutdown time take age.....
    also i have to install the latest itunes in windows before it can recognize it as having firmware version 2.0....

    That's why it's called a BETA version

    But Apple has still three months two fix all the bugs and speed the whole thing up. I'm sure when it's finished it will be as fast as the previous firmwares!

    BTW, the Contacts App is really buggy as hell, it crashes several times when I try to use it.
    Also the Icon says MobileAdressB instead of Contacts... maybe I can fix it via SSH later!

    yer i cant be bothered upgrading to 2.0 cause all ive heard is that it is crap! The only reason i would upgrade is to use the Microsoft Exchange Server for emails!

    They would never take the CPU lock Off.

    It would kill the battery within 1 - 2 hours and heat up the device.

    2.0 Beta is crazy Slow, when connected to the computer.

    Its a bit faster when un-tethered. YouTube & Maps are a bit glitchy.

    Music stops at times, Videos pauses.... Then speeds up to catch up (like fast forwarding) where its STILL playing.

    Sound goes on and Off.

    All the Apps (Native + SDK) hang.

    Boot & Shut Down (Slide to power Off) time is Drastically longer.

    It took about 20 Seconds to Turn ON.

    30 Seconds to Turn OFF.

    I'm thinking of switching back to Factory Non-Pwned Non-Jailbroken 1.1.4.

    I lasted only a couple of hours on 2.0. I can't handle the bugs, especially with contacts, I use that a lot for work.

    Just pwned 1.1.4 now.

    @Tes: If you were ever going to pick a time to be jailbroken, I think now's the time with Pwnage. Its by far the most stable jailbreak Ive used. Everyting works great.

    The thing I don't like about Jailbreak is:

    Quality of the Apps. I want to see more Apps created through the SDK you know? With the SDK, you now have better tools to create great apps.

    Maintenence. Having to worry about every little app and its compatibility, fighting with Updates. Its just like owning a Hackintosh. Too much Hassle.

    Kinds of Apps. Honestly, there is nothing I need from Installer. None of the apps offered anything I needed or wanted. Even the SDK Samples bored me.
