The BB is inferior in so many ways. I can't get proper ssh without shelling out $100. I can't update without windows etc.. I will never get a BB again.
Take heart. RIM is facing a dangerous time and it is is likely they will start to make some good decisions, or at least I hope so. OOS and Linux are slowly gaining popularity and establishing a strong foothold in the business world and with Google's Android on the horizon Linux users will finally have an excellent cell phone option. I predict (again hopefully) that this will wake RIM up to the importance of supporting the Linux community.
In short, they'll have to scramble to not be left behind. I really like my BB. I hope I do not have to abandon it. But like I said before. Once a better option comes along I will not look back. As I suspect neither will you.
