"The reasoning Blackberry has behind the lack of a traditional home screen sounds great. A lot of people go from one app to another so why close out, take extra steps and go back to a home screen and take extra steps to find another?"

Indeed, the fact that the Blackberry OS up to Blackberry 7 requires that be done to switch between apps is the #1 most irritating thing about the OS and the #1 most common complaint people have about the OS....

Here's a scenario I see myself facing all the time:

I'm listening to Pandora or Slacker, I hear the 'beep' of an email coming in, to check the email I have to exit Pandora, go back to the home screen, enter ''messages', read email, type response if necessary, exit messages, go back to home screen, go back to 'applications' folder, restart Pandora....

This is 2013 for goodness sake, there is absolutely no reason why checking email while listening to Pandora should be that difficult.....almost anything would be an improvement.
