    All I ask is: Are these ROM's for Froyo out of control? Why is there so many? Why am I changing a ROM per day? Is it ridec?

    I will relent, most of these ROM's are BETA and I will gladly test them. But consider I am a stander by and am just watching to see what can come out of good. Prove this test wrong until a better AOSP is delivered.

    And by god, let the debated continue.

    Yes. Go back to stock 2.1 if you're waiting for the Droid X like I am since you might have to anyway. It's actually a nice changing knowing that you won't have to update/wipe data/etc.

    All curent 2.2 roms are the same. Slightly different speeds, and scripts. Different skins, boot animations cosmetics and whatnot. No rom right now has blown me away so far. Some are less buggy and more functional and stable.

    Choice is one of the fundamental properties of the Android OS that makes it great. Even if the differences in the ROMs are minimal, they still allow each of us one more level of customization to make our phones the way we want them.

    Plus don't forget. Things run different on different phones. Some people BB runs well others SS, CM. Options allow us to find a setup that works best.

    None of them work for me and yes I try it all.

    I'll keep reading and wait till i see a rom that works just fine.

    Froyo no good to me right now :)

    How could they be out of control? I love the fact the all the devs are doing their own thing, making tweaks and giving us a huge amount of choice. Hell when CM 6.0 is released it may even take the Froyo notch up another level, who knows? Point is all these ROMs inspire creativity in the devs to look for the next new, cool feature that can be hacked in or tweaked. What is not to love?

    I think we need more. Seriously, there could be a million of them, and it wouldn't be out of control.

    first, more roms equals more choices for us.
    second, and probably more important, is the more doing it the more each dev learns and perfects his/her own rom.

    Not so anymore. With source dropped on AOSP, and the latest FRF83B build, while roms will look and behave mostly alike, there can be great differences in how they are actually running in the background.

    JRummy's Source ROM, for example is using Koush's vendor setup, while CVPCS pride's himself on the fact he isn't, and that he has his own custom vendor setup.

    Yes, many of the wonderful addons we came so used to from the 2.1 days are still not there, but its just a matter of time, Froyo is still young, mind you.
