You are correct that there is a limited amount of software for the Storm the works. There is a lot of software that says it is for the Storm but doesn't actually work. You must be very careful and try to only buy software that you can trial before paying. I can tell you from personally experience that much of the time, if there is no trial it doesn't work. I say this because I have been suckered several times by seemingly reputable software vendors, whose products work well on other BB's but don't on the Storm.
If you are looking for business and productivity software, there are a number of programs that work quite well. There are no themes out yet, and I can't speak to the issue of ringtones as I am satisfied with those that come with the Storm. I don't do games so I can't speak to that issue either.
But, as has been observed , hang in there and there will be plenty of software soon. RIM just released a developers package specifically for the Storm and tha should result in a bunch of new software in a month or so. 73
