Usage of Android 2.2 picks up, closing gap with Android 2.1
The next build of the Android OS is expected to be 3.0, also known as Gingerbread in keeping with the software's use of food items for code names. Google will most likely be slowing down the number and frequency of firmware upgrades, replacing them with updates that can be downloaded from the Android Market. This should slow down the fragmentation of the OS and allow manufacturers to offer handsets with similar features and functions instead of having to rush out an OTA upgrade to keep up with other Android models.

My Droid gets worse with every update. I dread to receive the Gingerbread OS.

These phones have an open source OS. They are meant to be rooted it seems. Root your phone, get a custom ROM. Get a custom Froyo ROM if you really have to have the latest and greatest although there are 2.1 ROM's out there that make 2.2 a moot point. Generally, the carriers are giving you a base version and you can upgrade if you like. Think of it like this, They are giving you a Subaru Impreza and the upgrade to the STI model has negligable cost to you.
