    I would, I would install Windows Phone 7 on my iPhone.

    The OS is just so smooth and clean. Feels natural IMO. Don't care about the rarity of apps because the important ones are there anyway and I am not a huge app guy myself.

    WP7 or Android.

    Personally I love all 3 of them. Just the form factor and feel of the iPhone is why I go for it.

    No. If I wanted to run a different OS I'd buy a phone that ran that. Either in addition to or instead of my iPhone.

    I would love to be able to dual boot my iPhone into Windows 7 mobile... I played around with it and like it alot. I wouldnt bother with Android.

    Seriously? Why not just buy the phone with the OS of your choice?

    But hey, whatever floats your boat.
