I'm not saying it's better then some of the ROMs that are out there. Matter of fact I'll go so far to say it isn't but it's definitely better then stock 2.0.1.
Android 2.1 update causes major 2D slowdown on Droid | Ed Burnette’s Dev Connection | ZDNet.com
EDIT: Also I think crippled was the right choice of word to use, because from 60 FPS to 30, it's cut in half. What do you call someone in a wheelchair that paralysis half of their body?

Now maybe I'm taking a placebo pill here but I know for a fact that my Droid is faster now then it was before. I don't care what that one video shows, and remember that's only part of the picture that doesn't show everything behind the update. I can't quote specific threads but I have read that while they slowed the FPS down they did make up for it with other OS changes that didn't require it to have to run at 60 FPS.
That's why I say "crippled" isn't an appropriate word in this issue.
When I did the manual OTA update mine experienced the same slowdown. I went back to 2.0.1 and updated to Pete's rooted 2.1 and installed all my apps and it seemed worse, even with the phone OC'd to 1100Mhz.
A simple reboot solved the problem and phone has been butter smooth since.
