Not sure if I want Dell being the one to skin my phone for user-friendliness

I mean we've had 5 versions in a year and a half...
1.1 launched in Feb. '09
1.5 (doughnut) in April '09
1.6 (cupcake) in Sept. '09
2.0/2.1 (eclair) in Oct. '09
2.2 (froyo) in May '10
3.0 (gingerbread) in Q4 2010?
I know my Hero just finally got 2.1 (released by Google in October '09) in May, but now Sprint and HTC have said no 2.2 for the Hero. The phone's not even been out a year (launched Oct. '09) and they're still selling them, but apparently can't be bothered to give it an update that sounds like it would be especially good for devices with slower processors. I'm kinda miffed.
Can you just upload/install a vanilla version of 2.2 by yourself, or do you need the Sprint specific stuff?
