    I just upgraded my Roku 2HD to 5.0.8043. Big improvement. Very appealing to the eye.

    The change in the UI is the big issue...easier to scroll a grid when you have a lot of channels versus a linear display. There are some under the cover changes in the area of system management (supposed to make channel loading faster). But most of the streaming functionality is dependant on how the channel providers write their apps and use the Roku platform functions, so you won't see any changes in the Netflix app, for example, unless Netflix updates it.
