I wouldn't think it would be "all things" to all users.....YET. It is a bit of a drag that BlackBerry is basically starting over in 2013, but that is a fact.
The time it'll take to get "on par" with Android and iOS will be minimal.

OK - this isn't a complaint, issue or problem. It is pretty funny.
Got a Z10 at the launch. Beautiful box, sliding plastic case over it - an "elite" package.
Finally took out the Polishing Cloth (that's what the bag says). It is huge and reads "BlackBerry PlayBook" on it. Guess they had a lot of extras laying around.

Now, I'm not so unhappy that I have to wait 'til March to get my white Z10 from Verizon. I understand this is a new OS, but for Pete's sake...using that as an excuse for removing functions the older OS had? My 9930 has options for delete on phone or delete on phone & mailbox, I can control the LED, set separate ringer volumes for different email accounts & contacts, and create custom profiles just to name a few things. That's like buying a new Caprice and Chevy not including air conditioning as an option for 2014 since they redid the body mouldings. I expected BB to maintain the usability of the phone, and improve upon it while maintaining all the little things that make me love my BB.
I'll still purchase one, of course, but now I might wait for an OS update to be released (or apps like BeBuzz, etc.) that fix these "minor" oversights.

Somewhat confused as to what the OP expects from a 1.0 version OS..... Every first gen OS is riddled with omittions and bugs.... If you expect performance of a v 1.2 or higher simply wait six months to a year for the upgrades..... The arguments everyone keeps making about bugs is astounding to me... They should have tried the first gen Iphone like I did.... Talk about bugs and omittions... still waiting for cut and paste.... If you want to be on the bleeding edge then be prepared to bleed a little...

If you ascribe to that logic blackberry 10 is technically a quasi third gen OS.

Hi OP. I don't have time right now to read all the responses to your original post. I will have to come back later as it seems a lot of good information is coming out.
I don't have a problem with you voicing your opinions at all. However I do take issue with the ones where you say 'you will want...'. Please don't presume to know what I like to have on my phone. For example - I couldn't care less if bbm opens in landscape. I much prefer to type in portrait. Some of your other issues are similar - they are issues for some people and not for others. Some of them are design choices and you will find these with any OS.
Out of your list there were 3 points that I personally would like to see addressed by BlackBerry. And I have confidence that they will be. Only you can decide what are 'dealbreakers' for you, but it does sound like, with so many things bothering you about the Z10, you would be better off to send it back and go with a phone that more meets your needs.

All people are saying is that BB10 will keep getting improved which you're just reading way to much into. There are no huge features missing like every other platform had at launch and the little things will be improved. And of course they are listening as Kevin already said and will be making improvements. Your jabs are getting tiring and I don't see how a gesture based OS is mediocre. It blows my iPhone and Android touchpad out of the water and I for one can't wait for the Z10. Here are some of the touches I'm sure you won't mention.

RE: BB Balance.
There's a different thread about this, but the gist is that BB balance is all about profiles not message separation.
If I've understood correctly, if you get a work email when the personal profile is selected, you'll still get the notification. Unfortunately, because it won't flash or beep any differently, you'll have to look to see. (which is OP's point 1 I believe.)
