    I paid $50 for one of those 6 months ago. What do you want to know?

    I have no problems with angry birds space on my D1. I've had it for a couple weeks and love it. O haven't seen any apps that it will not run yet.

    I suppose there might be some apps that will only run on the newer OS's. And there are a few apps that won't run on certain machines, the Droid among them, but I don't think one would miss them.

    I think I read about an app once and when I tried to install it, it wasn't in the Market (know called Play apps) because Play screens out apps that I can't install. But there was a substitute that worked on "older" (the Droid is about 2.5 years old) phones.

    The key is decide if there is a killer app one wants and then investigate if that particular app will run rather than other way 'round.

    There several are apps that won't run unless the phone is rooted and that might be where the rumor you heard came from.

    Update: Temple Run shows up in Play, so it is compatible
    Same with hanging with friends
    and drawing will work, too.

    Whether these games actualy do work is another story. Google the name of the program and add "Froyo" or "2.2" to the search line.

    Worth it?? Yes, its almost a necessity to be able to use most newer apps well...
    I'd also suggest flashing a rom as well since they are optimized for speed and battery life...you'll want a froyo (android 2.2) based one for games
