Yes it's Fast!!
Android has the best developers!
Wait for 1.1.1 thats in testing. Its basically 1.1, with all up to date fixes, and a couple of additions. The default rom sports a red and black theme. The unthemed rom in the forum has most of the updates that are present in 1.1.1, but not all of them.
Most unenlightened people do not care what lies underneath the hood, but if it looks nice, and is supercharged, guaranteed they'll hop the boat.
And Pete's stock 2.1 compile isn't nearly as epic as Cyanogenmod's powerhouse structure.
