    Seems like you haven't used WP 7.5.
    The concept of hubs is much more than that. It is bigger than just the Me Hub, and many users saw it has a HUGE potential. It included:
    - A Messaging hub: SMS + Facebook + Windows Live chatting, all in one place. It could have grown to include an API for other 3rd party developers, to include theirselves in the Messaging app. Imagine a single place for all of your texting needs: Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Telegram, etc.
    - A Me Hub: All things about you, including SOME notifications from Facebook and Twitter, your most recent status on any social service at the time, a way to post to all of them at once. It could have grown for more, to include more things about the user on other social services ( an API to give developers access to other services to link to it)
    - A Games Hub: All of your games list, scores, Xbox integrated, achievements, avatar, etc. It was way easier to track your games at the time, keep track of friends, etc.
    - People Hub: It was truly magnificent to track all about your contacts. Now it basically leads you to the app, which is not bad, but not as fast as it was either!
    - Pictures Hub: It included your gallery (in a very great design), with other photos from other social services (which also could have been great if opened to developers to bake it there as well).

    You see, this was a great solution to a big problem: being organized and effective while being unique as an OS.

    Anyhow, its your personal preference to like it or not, for me and many others, this was one of the things that drought us to Windows Phone in the first place!
    The good old days
