I completely agree with you GrandpaHomer.
I've been messing around on Home since it's beta, and there was a time it was fun and I actually was able to meet and talk to people regularly. However, now, since they've added so much to Home, it's become terrible to use.
The load times are really unforgivable. I have a 500gb drive in my ps3, so I have everything installed, and it still takes forever to load from one area to another. Also, even once the area is loaded, you still have to wait additional minutes for other people's avatars to load, and even then, wait even further for them to load in detail.
Nothing quite like seeing blurry, low texture heads and waiting for them to load the detail to see them clearly. Also, if you walk 10 feet away from them, they will "unload" and you have to reload them again to see them clearly, even though you were just next to them and it was loaded (cache anyone?).
I like Home, but because of lack of optimization, it becomes a chore to use it. I spend more time waiting for it to load, then actually doing anything on it...
