If violence wasn't your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.
There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
While I understand this is frustrating to a lot of users, I personally enjoy touchwiz 4.0. I know that's not applicable to the phones in question, but I'm just saying not ALL OEM "skins" are the devil. TW4.0 on the epic touch is actually a pretty nice user experience.
Also I don't know how well ICS will handle on single core phones. I was skeptical about it for my Droid x til I purchased the nexus .
I do agree though that it should be an optional skin - similar to what BlackBerry used to offer with the Storm and newer devices. You didn't have to have the same look and feel, you could revert to other styles if you wanted.
I'm not to worried. I will eventually have ICS on my OG Droid and my unbranded gt-p1000 galaxy tab 7. I may have to wait a few more weeks for bugs to be worked out, but the modding community is hard at work putting together some great roms for these devices that were forgotten long ago by the OEMs and Carriers. I have yet yo meet a carrier or OEM rom that compared to what aftermarket developers have been able to do. That is also the reason I will not buy a device with a locked bootloader or one that initially comes skinned by the OEM. Blur, Sense = bloat
I don't get why people are upset about this. They bought the device with touchwiz on it. I'm sure it would make a LOT more people angry to get a new update that looks absolutely nothing like what they're used to than it will to just not put ICS on the phone. May as well anger the rooted crowd as opposed to the core group of users.
