    Because it wasn't catered towards the iPhone 3G at all. They just took the 3Gs version and removed some features like multitasking and wallpapers with a line of code.

    I hope this also applies for the second generation iPod touch, because I think the same applies for the device. Although I was initially impressed, after using it thoroughly, I am really disappointed with the performance of iOS4 on my device. Besides being plagued with countless bugs, it's awfully laggy.

    _edit_

    Exactly. It feels so bloated, and when you skim through the filesystem on a jailbroken device, you can see it is.

    I've got an iPod Touch second gen running iOS 4.0, and it's completely lag-less most of the time. I thought the 3g and second gen touch would be a closer match.

    With my 3G iPod touch, everything ran smoothly with the exception of the battery dying wayyyy too fast.

    Hopefully apple fixes this for the 2G users. It must be awful to have a laggy iDevice. >.<

    I'm on my iPhone 3G right now. It's jailbroken on 4.0.1. The preformance is complete ass. I haven't tried the beta yet, but I seriously hope 4.1 fixes the issues...

    I have a 2g 16GB touch and since iOS4 I hate using the thing. Tons of apps crash, slow as molasses and battery lasts half as long as 3.1.3 did. And to top it off, Apple wont let you go back to 3.1.3, thanks Apple!
