Windows Mobile 5.0 Notification Blues

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I've just bought a Qtek 9100, or HTC Magician.  Great.  I'd done a little
bit of legwork into the devices and operating systems and foolishly thought
:) that by now, Windows CE / PocketPC / Windows Mobile / whatever it's
called these days will be significantly improved over and above what it was,
thus, stuff will work.

Actually, overall a decent improvement over WM2003 and previous generations.
Connectivity is a real strength, both from getting stuff set up and of
course using it too.  WiFi, Bluetooth - just works (so far).

But why oh why has the notification bug still not been fixed?  Why do I have
to fumble around with patches and whatnot for something that <suppressing
rant> should be basic stuff for any PDA.

<Sighs>.  I broke two rules with the Qtek 9100; one was never to buy another
PDA with moving parts (*cough* broke that one with the Tungsten T2) and two,
never buy another Microsoft operating system one either.  But it was all so
shiny and fully featured in the store. ;)  Is there anything else I should
look out for?  I guess the usual PocketPC stuff (I can live with), such as
occasional performance hiccups, the odd crash, and similar...
