Not really surprised or disappointed.
Looking at this from a logical point of view, I'm kinda siding moreso with a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." train of thought... we already witnessed firsthand that the upgrade came with sacrifices and compromises... leaving us with 2.3.4 didn't really do anything but save everyone a hassle. Less complaints filed for Sony, less of the devs having to stop working on new projects to patch older ones, and less of a waiting game on our consumer-side.
People that are willing to sacrifice their stability and software compatibility just to have the newest thing can already do so. The rest of use can stick to 2.3.X which works perfectly with everything.
My only real regret is not getting my hands on that sweet-looking new Game Launcher (which I'm willing to bet could just be ripped from the ROM and used without ICS).
