CM7 on my Motorola Defy turned it into the most perfect phone (for me) that I could imagine.  All Motorola users should get rid of Motoblur and use an unofficial ROM.  I can reccomend CM7 because it works great for me but the wonderful thing about unofficial ROMs is that you can find one that works great for you.  Freedom of choice is a beautiful thing.

CM7 is a really good ROM. It is powerful, but is too powerful. Its not stable, and murders the battery of every device. I prefer MIUI myself. But I do give major credit to CM7 and the devs.

Too powerful?

Are you reading the wrong website?

I think you may be more interested in a site like MacWorld  :)

Can't wait for CM9 to bring ICS... :D No idea how many firmwares I have flashed onto my SGS now... every time, its almost as if I have a completely new phone, with new UIs, tweaks, apps, etc. CM was nice but Darkys and SURFACE were my mainstays.

I'm going to wait before getting onto ICS since the developers are still working on some kinks...

Yeah, I'm eyeing the upcoming Moto Droid 4 or Razr Maxx (dumb name) phones, but I was disappointed to learn they won't ship with ICS. ICS is baked but not quite iced yet, though, and the app support won't catch up for a few months. Since CM or another group will almost certainly bring ICS to those phones before the official upgrades, I'm still considering it.

Motorola/Verizon's locked boot loaders is the one big thing keeping me on the fence. It probably won't matter in the end, but it's still bothersome.

Get a Galaxy Nexus, it smokes both of those phones.
