I tried WP7 on my HD2 but could not get past the Live Services verification step. I've given up for now but I absolutely loved the interface and the web browsing. It made me seriously think about getting an HD7 as my next phone until I realised nothing is as open and moddable as Android. I've switched back to Android 2.3 on NAND.

Edit: Finally SUCCESS!!! I got the verification. Going to try WP7 for a while. A seriosuly annoying thing is that some apps that are free on Android Market are charged on WP7 Marketplace.

Last 2 days, I've used WP7 inc. live services and Android on SD Duel Boot. The best thing about WP7 is the smoothness of the OS although the multitouch sucks compared to Android.
I'm most likely gonna go back to Nandroid and use SD to test other Android builds.
So basically a duel boot android/android.

WP7 for me, well at least for the last four days...here is why

GPS...Instant no waiting at all for a fix, using Endomondo for running, the route is spot on, best i have ever seen on any of my other phones, or even this HD2 running WM to Android.

SOUND...the sound quality, through headphones on WP7 is second none, why on eaarth its so much better than Android I really don't know and the ZUNE player and online stuff is simply fantastic

OFFICE...miles better than WM office, Android office apps just don't cut it

GAMES...try Harvest wow can't believe my HD2 is actually running this. loads more to try, also loving AlphaJAX bit like scrabble and wordsmith on Android only slicker.

INTERFACE...slick super fast, makes Android and WM on the HD2 seem antiquated

SOCIAL...the people update is simply perfect, facebook and twitter apps never look so good, loving the swiping about

KEYBOARD...never used such a easy to use keyboard, not sure why its so much better, I can type faster then on swipe, weird

Camera and Video... well this is hands down miles better than anything else for the HD2, did some filming at the weekend and the clarity is amazing

CALENDAR...quick easy and perfect for me to add and adjust my busy schedule

PHONE and SMS...sound quality and signal just work

Ok there are few teething problems but hopefully between XDA and Microsoft these will improve, ie...cut/paste, flash would be nice, but uses to much of my 3g allowance, Multitasking not that it needs it, it runs so fast, but perhaps being able to run my online radio with the brilliant rescoradio and do other things would be nice, otherwise you can have music running all the time and do other things, lets see what happens...

BTW you should cross MeeGo, 'cause it's not been released yet, not even a beta.
I'm using an Activated WP7

Lately I've been running MDJ Gingerbread CM7 flashed from recovery. I like being able to quickly create a clockworkmod backup, swap sd card, then flash WP7 or ubuntu just to mess around with. Afterward I can just flash back clockworkmod, stick my other sd card back in, restore and go right back to gingerbread.

Looking at the poll results thusfar, it seems that the HD2 has to be called an android phone xD

well, my hd2 runs on custom wm. have been jumping between energy and dutty rom. I must say both are equally good and rock stable. But i decided to stay with dutty because his comes with chinese input. tried andriod SD but it's eating battery as if it's free! so decided to stay with wm.

Perhaps a Senior Mod can add this ones

Actually, knowingly didn't add them as they don't support phone functions so they can't be used as a daily driver.

Guys using Stock Windows Mobile 6.5.x on device like HD2 don't deserve to be on XDA
