    Besides some lag and the stupid bloatware, I love everything about this update!

    I am also experiencing horrible lag, poor battery life, and lots of annoying adware.

    I experienced the same thing. But I installed the update FRG22D and did a few battery pulls and it's running fine now.

    I just updated my phone two days ago and the apps constantly running in the background is quite annoying.

    I have ATK and I kill apps every time I pick up my droid. the number always stays at two, before the update the number would go to zero and stay there.

    This is not a task killing thread, let's get back on topic. Are you enjoying your Droid with 2.2? Seems like the comments say no, but the voting says yes.

    So far I think I actually enjoyed 2.1 better than 2.2. Some of the aspects of 2.2 are better, but I think the overall feel of 2.1 has been better for me.

    I actually agree with the OP. My Droid ran smoother before I was running froyo and still had 2.1. And considering that flash works on 2.1 and there is a way to get apps2sd on 2.1, froyo really doesnt seem like very much of an improvement.
