Flashy UI and non Flashy UI at the same time.
Do you guys think that it would be a good idea for RIM to allow two choices of how their User Interface reacts. The basic OS that we have right now could be a choice and a really flashy UI could be another choice. I dont know how many of you are familiar with myspace, but Myspace gives you the ability to use the traditional simple myspace layout, and the new version of myspace for those people who want it updated and more flashier.
What do you guys think? Should there be a future choice for those who would rather a basic UI and those who want the fun UI?

It would be nice to have an option to keep the OS dry as dusty bare bones like the brutal looking curve/bold OS iterations, or keep the transitions that the storm has now which leads so many to cry out that it is slow
edit: you beat me to is scorp. I agree with ya there!.328

I think some people want every possibly screen to look flashy though. I could care less how my settings screen or whatever looks. Most applications look nice with their own design too.~Matt

The themes people create for the storm are top notch. I had the android one on until I got rid of it and if I had but one complaint its that themes add to the lag. If rim fixes up their OS some then the rest would be handled by the community for the flashinessI has a gadget

yeap true....thats the thing about it, i dont care if someone gets offended by me comparing storm to the iphone, but hardware wise the storm has much higher capabilities than the iPhone. Yes iPhones OS is on point, but the hardware installed in the Storm that contributes to the software has a great potential to outshine the IPhones OS capabilities. Ive already accepted that the OS on this phone was obviously not complete, but it doesnt bother me because that just means a more complete one is out there to come. As of now im fine with the way my storm is and will wait for the improvements to come.

use the search function for themes. and check out the OS forum for discussions on OS changes."And third, it's the BlackBerry.
