You do the math! Come to think of it though, windows mobile is on the whole becoming a little oldy in terms of drastic changes in its UI. They definitely have become more finger-friendly (this is the main difference in 6.5.1) but thatís it. That said we should wait for the new windows mobile 7 if we want to see something really new!
The UI changes in the newer builds (i.e. the Start, OK etc. buttons at the bottom and the larger, more thumb-friendly, menus) are a huge bonus (my personal opinion). I have also, however, noticed quite an improvement in performance with some of the builds.
I'm not sure I agree with your comment on the devs with respect to their lack of interest in the newer builds - I have only noticed this lack of interest with the Iolite devs (dancer being the exception, of course). There seems to be a lot more interest in the other forums resulting in many excellent ROMs. Maybe the sheer lack of devs for the Iolite would explain this.
I too am really looking forward to WM7 but as is often the case I want it yesterday
I've been using nothing other than HTC WM devices since the XDA2 over 6 years ago and have been longing for the day when I no longer need the stylus. Big up to dancer for his efforts in getting us closer to WM7 a little sooner!!
