I personally feel that after upgrading my Bold 9700 from OS 5 to OS 6, I made a mistake since I couldn't install as many apps onto it as I wanted to.
I could always go back to OS 5 but I don't want to spend all the time doing so.
If there was an OS 7 for the Bold 9700, I would not upgrade it since as you've mentioned, I feel that the Bold 9700 can barely run OS 6 based on the amount of memory on the device and the speed of the device.
