Why don't you just install the necessary software which would enable you to
stick with Grafitti1? Why should you suffer? Why the unnecessary learning
curve? I understand why Palm cannot ship it with Grafitti1, but it's similar
to MP3 support in operating systems.

I remember many discussion in this newsgroup that revolved around Grafitti2.
Very few people seem to like it, let alone accept it.
