Sure, Apple has a "We know what's best" attitude... but the thing is, they're usually right in the end, IMO.
Like I've said here before, however... Apple has a LOT more on it's plate than other companies who only focus on their phones. Not an excuse, perhaps, but still...
I have faith that they'll deliver... they always do (eventually).

Apple has no carrier (yet) in China, so they sell officially unlocked iPhones in Taiwan and Hong Kong. They're fairly Sun Tzu, so parts of Jailbreak might appeal to them, especially if it lets casual users keep a clean experience and expert users get their hands dirty...

Maybe so... too bad Apple squandered an opportunity to build our ancticipation for real features at the last Macworld. I've gotten tired of speculating when Apple will get cedrtain things right though. I have succeeded in reaching full function on the things I need. My enthusiasm for 3.x is also tempered by knowing I will have to wait for it since Apple will invariably do something to try and prevent further jailbreaking... which for me means that it will minimally be a waiting period... and at worst become a decision of fixing myself at a point in time so I don't lose what Apple doesn't seem to want me to have -- a fully functional and usable Smart Phone. :-\

Yeah...I had mine jailbroken for a while. So did the g/f.
We had our 1st gens jailbroken and dealt with the lag (which didn't seem to be as bad with installer and summerboard as it is with cydia and winterboard now). The main reason there was it allowed you to have multiple pages, and download games and apps, which at the time you couldn't do.
When Apple started allowing you to rearrange things, and the app store came out, the benefits no longer outweighed the annoyances for me. We jailbroke our 3Gs for a while and the lag was terrible, so we restored them.
The only thing I wish apple would let you do is change the wallpaper on your home screen, not just the lock screen.
