Umm, what exactly is locked down?

Yes TouchWiz 3.0 isn't super flexible but neither is Sense or Motoblur. At least with TouchWiz 3.0 you can change the number of screens if you don't need all 7, change two of the four icons on the bottom panel or as the best option switch to a different launcher like ADW or LauncherPro. The beauty of Android is that almost every part can be changed to your liking and this is still the case with the Vibrant. Don't like the stock messaging app? Get Handcent. Don't like the stock email app? Get Touchdown or K9. If you really think that the Vibrant runs a "locked down" version of Android then you need to go back and put that critique in for every other Android phone not named Nexus One.
