That's fine...I honestly believe that you should make your own decisions. But, keep in mind what the process is. The process is that RIM releases OS packages to ALL carriers at the same time -- when RIM comes up with one that they feel is adequate, they release it to the carriers. The carriers then each have their own processes to go through to accomplish many things including ensuring that they agree that it is adequate, that it contains they think would benefit their users, and very importantly getting their people trained on it so that they can provide the support that they are contractually bound to provide. If it passes all of those points with a carrier, then they put their "wrappers" onto the OS (those annoying carrier-specific teaser icons we all love so much!) and release it to their user base.
So, when two carriers release the same OS level, it truly is the same OS at it's core...the only difference is the wrappers that they each put onto it. Further, you will find that some carriers quickly release each new OS...and it is my theory that the step they tend to skip is the training of their support staff (which takes the longest). Other carriers you will notice take much longer between releases...and will even skip over some releases that come between. It is my belief that these carriers are trying harder to truly certify the OS and get their folks trained...so they might skip things in the middle.
All in all, any OS that comes from the carrier download portal has been certified by at least two entities -- RIM and at least one carrier. Hence, in no way would it be considered "buggy" or a "leak". However, keep in mind that the process still involves the most imperfect of things -- humans. So any expectation of perfection should be tossed away. Witness the OS 5 versions since I think about the .800 level...many things were "fixed" in those, but a bug concerning bedside mode was introduced...those pesky humans simply missed that one.

I have updated my Pearl 9105 to OS 6 recently. Everything is going alright at the moment! Maybe I have not explore all the functions available.. But there is one issue though, regarding new folder in Home menu. I have a few different email folders in the Home Menu, so what I am trying to do is to create a new folder, to put all the different email folders into one folder. I have no problem creating a new folder, but I can only move one email folder into the new folder. Anyone can help me on this? or is it a bug? Thanx.

Any reason why we need to delete the vendor.xml file. I am using unlocked phone with Bharti Airtel currently, so if I use a version released by Bharti Airtel without deleting the vendor.xml file, will it lead to problems if I change my service provider in future...
No issues. The only thing that deleting VENDOR.XML does is allow an OS package to be installed to a BB that was not originally from the same carrier as the OS package. Nothing else.
