Yes. Quality > Quantity. Granted it may not be a total wash, but for the most part WP7 Marketplace has all the necessary apps, in small quantities, but rich in quality.

For example, when using my droids there were 5 apps for 1 task I wanted to accomplish... And neither were solid. Constant crashes, annoying advertisements, and the selection process of going through what is available and if the developer is reliable.

This is going to be a great partnership. The world's leading phone manufacturer with an awesome OS. It will get better and better. Just look at iOS. When it was released it was laughable and now it is rockin. What is the point of being so disappointed? Just give it some time and we will definitely see success.
