    And i guess that dabien red will be the package of UPDATE 1.
    Debian Red is hardware specific firmware that augments the OS. It brings highly unique features to the Lumia line not found in the OS, and specific to the Microsoft/Nokia hardware.

    It's also a huge change and much more than what is just Update 1.

    An alphabetical listing is great, but they should take it further and provide search through at least the first level of settings with optional keywords you can use in case you don't know the exact setting name. Also, as already mentioned - pinning settings would be awesome.

    A feature I would highly like is "Quick Action". (I basically invented the term). Its involves having the option to quickly reply to texts and facebook notifications, without exiting the app or game you are using. Its so frustrating to go to the message app and reply a simple "Yes" or "Lol" to a text, while playing Subway surfers! I know. Its something coming to IOS 8, and I think its already available in some Android, but then again, no harm in borrowing a universally liked concept. They could even implement it better, eg. But giving us an option to like or comment on fb status notifications from the banner. How about a swipe to the left for a "Quick Action"? The WA I visualize it, the swipe would expand the banner downwards, with the space having a text box and/or buttons based on the notifications. Hows the idea and implementation?
    Like BB10, yes.

    Purportedly SD805 support. Hmmm. Can we expect a 1520 successor with SD 805 or perhaps a flagship from any other OEMs like Samsung or LG? Personally, Id love to see all 1530 and LGG3/Note4 for windows phone.
    If there isn't an expected flagship to come with GDR2 then can't they add some other useful feature for consumers and push this OEM related feature to threshold? Unless ofcourse rumors about 1520 successor are true.

    No it is not. HTC One comes with Update 1(GDR1). Update 2(GDR 2) hasn't even been released by Microsoft yet.

    Think of it this way.

    Everyone is complaining about WHEN IS CYAN AVAILABLE? Correct?

    Well Debian Red is pretty much like Cyan, even one will complain WHERE IS DEBIAN RED :P

    Because firmware updates sure takes their sweet time to get pass carrier approval..

    CV? What do you mean by that?

    CV = country variants, aka non-carrier phones

    The process for firmware approvals, including possibly lumping together with Previews is something to look towards.

    Oh those you mean like the international version with no custom (carrier) ROM in it?

    It is strange though that those phones don't get a firmware update at the beginning since there's no carrier testing needed.

    One way they could help with the settings menu mess is to make settings searchable via Cortana. One of the best things Microsoft did with Windows 7 is to make Control Panel settings searchable from the Start Menu. Not just search by the name of the setting, but also by what that setting option contains.

    Also, pinnable settings as mentioned previously would also be a good option.

    I get the whole color thing but why have the name of a linux distribution as part of the name for your firmware? Seems quite odd to me.

    I guess the only thing I need is more toggles /icons in action center. Like android has, swiping left and right. I need at least 5. Currently I have WIFI, Bluetooth, Screen brightness and Screen rotation. I need Internet sharing and preferably Data (using tile now)

    On sept. 4th, they are going to announce Lumia730/735 and Lumia830 which will come preinstalled with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, so, we'll also find about the name of firmware packaging Update 1.
