A lot of people wanted the iPad to have multi-touch OS X on it and a lot are pissed off because it runs a version of the iPhone OS. I think that is a good thing, though. Think about all the Windows-based tablets that came before. Ever seen anyone use one without giving up on the pen/stylus input and just use the keyboard and mouse? It makes sense that an OS built off a point and click interface would be best used with a keyboard and mouse. If the iPad were just multi-touch Snow Leopard, people wouldn't be able to do anything because using your fingers to "point and click" just doesn't work. It is the same thing as viewing an unoptimized website on the iPhone - you have to zoom in and be careful to tap what u want to tap. Perhaps Apple could have used an OS that was more powerful than the iPhone OS, but optimized for multi-touch. Thing is, that would have probably taken a longer time. I'm all for the iPad being open and would jailbreak it if possible, but wanting a tablet with the exact same OS as a full computer just doesn't make sense.
