On first look, not a big change, but lots of nice little tweaks. The extra home screens are very nice...and they added a web browser and phone button to the apps windowshade, so those can come off the home page now...

I'll play with it more during the week when I'm sitting around waiting for permits etc.

They got rid of the alarm clock shortcut. You have to go through Clock to access your alarms now, unless you already had the old shortcut on one of your home screens. Confused

sadly 2.2 is lagging on my Moto Droid. It looks like it's time for a hardware upgrade Sad I'm really feeling the Droid X but the Droid 2 seems like it may be a better choice unless they prop 2.2 for the X soonish. Unfortunately, I don't have to make any decisions right now because I can't afford either even though I can use a company phone that is eligible for upgrade..

...and I kinda liked how they consolidated the clock and the alarm clock - what I'm not liking is the new naming scheme for photos taken with the camera. I mean why would they do that? It was GREAT before.

Yeah, I wasn't all that impressed with the update. My favorite thing is that the camera takes pictures quicker. Other than that... not all that great and for most uses, it doesn't feel any faster even though they touted 2-5x performance increase.
