Oh well. Windows Phone 7 launch is today. See how that is. Since my expectations are so low, it may actually surprise me.
Exactly. It's stupid. You can remove them if you root, but honestly, you shouldn't have to. Even in my phone there is some HTC software (part of Sense) that I don't use or want, but it's so ingrained that it can't be removed without FUBARing the phone. Thankfully though, it's only like 5 apps and it isn't killing me.
In the case of the Vibrant, I would think you'd be able to run a ROM from an OEM i9000 Galaxy S, which should be able to mitigate a lot of issues.
