This is true. But the phones are being overnighted to people starting today. They have been "Dogfooding" it for a few weeks. Why are the "Developers" the last to see it? If this breaks apps, which it is certain to do, they are just further infuriating the Developers that are trying to make this a great platform. If they continue I may just break down and buy a Mac. At least with Apple you know where you stand... Generally under the foot of Jobs but at least you know it.
