I've always wondered why they mapped Voice to the Windows Key. It just doesn't make any sense to me. I like the idea for Long Press of Windows going to Notifications and Long Press of Search going to Voice.

My MAIN issue with them is speed, though. They are unusably slow for anything other than Email, SMS (both of those are pretty obvious). Even IMs are noticeably slower in the Mango IM client than third party clients on other platforms. Third Party apps from the same vendors all give push notifications that are a magnitude faster than the WP7 versions on other platforms.
I'm not sure what the issue is. But it seems the entire system is either bogged down or just badly engineered, period.
