Glad they fixed the Joy-Con color animation. With no music, themes, or even badges to speak of, it was a real bummer to lose out on that little bit of character and charm the Switch OS possessed.

Someday we'll get a better activity log. Someday.
And folders, and themes. Jesus lord.

I don't think it will ever get themes or music or anything like that, the Switch interface is designed to be clean and simple so you spend as little time as possible in it and go straight to the games.
It already has themes. Black and white. Adding more colors or themes from games really isn't going to affect performance.

Now if they could fix my left Joycon randomly disconnecting from the Switch during handheld play, that’d be great.
Oh fuck, someone else besides me got that?

My condolences, because unlike drifting that can be mitigated with a contact cleaner, that is unsolvable shit that forced me to buy new ones. I think it's down to a connector getting busted or something. How bad is it? Mine got to the point where it disconnected at the slightest nudge and handheld mode became unplayable after a while.

Maybe there is a some advanced DIY guide somewhere, but I can't imagine it being anything other than a big hassle.
