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.
