Just because you cant root doesnt mean that the after D1 droids arent customizable. I know you cant over clock it but you can use whatever back grounds, arrange your apps on any page the way you want and with the apps out there you can customize a bunch of things. I have the DX and it is crazy fast, way faster than my D1 was and I can do so much more as far as pics, vids, and movies! I will admit that I do not care to spend hundreds on a phone then sit down right out of the box and root and reroot and change roms every third day just to change it up.
For the geeks out there that are like that, sorry for your loss!
Its not about changing it every other day. its about what android was made for.. the purpose of it... Freedom, open source. and its being locked down by moto BLURR and signed boot loaders. Yea im sure the DX is fast.. and im sure the Droid2 and Droid Pro wil be super fast as well and Im also sure that in less than a year from those releases motorola will release something better with more of a nazi lockdown on it. but whatever. I love my droid. I like the keyboard and the "what if" option i have. Plus JRummy is a development GURU! and he makes some sick looking stuff... and honestly i HATE the white notification bar hahaah sounds stupid but yea. The main problem is the DX is taking away from the reason why google BUILT ANDROID. ... and thats the worst part.
