After using 6.5, would you go back to 6.1 ?

The more I play with WinMo 6.5, the more I like it. The other day I had to get a "insurance replacement" phone, and that came with 6.1 on it. I played with it for about 3 hours and said to myself, how did I actually like this ? 3 hours and 5 min, I had 6.5 back on.

6.1 very hard to use with a finger, need the pen for most things, needed to use scrollbars for everything. WM 6.5 SOOOOO finger frendly from e-mail, contacts, home page, etc.

So, what is people's thoughts here, after using 6.5 for a few days to a week, would you go back to 6.1 ?

I can't go back because I LOVE 6.5....But I only had my phone for a few days before I flashed a 6.5 rom and never went back, so maybe I didn't give 6.1 a fair chance...We will never know though

I've been using WM devices from PocketPC 1.0 (yea, if you played with them way before PPC phones came out), it's aways been designed for a pen/stylus. Never really finger frendly.

Think of 6.1 like 6.5 but, you had scrol bars for everything, so no finger sliding...

I do love 6.5....Looking forward to what MS does with "7"

Guess I don't know what I am missing but I never left 6.1.
Works fine for me.
I don't mind using the stylus and with 6.5 it seems like you have to perform more clicks to do something, but it is probably just in the way you set it up.

I don't love 6.5 per se -- but I sure think it's an improvement. Don't see myself going back to 6.1, but I've been annoyed by quite a bit of bugginess with 6.5 ROMs on my kaiser.
