Umm yes it does.. go read a forum.
I don't have to because if the iPad 1 to iOS5 was such a terrible experience, then the news would come to me. I wouldn't need to go looking for it. Apple is in everyone's crosshair, so any news would be all over. Haters would calling apple the worst company ever, fanboys would be defending it, and the rest of us would be laughing at both haters and fanboys.
I didn't catch your Apple Employee ID by the way.. what number was it? jeeze loser
I know that lately slashdot users have become fans of the ad hominem arguments. I expected the moment I slightly defende apple to be called a shill. Unfortunately for you, I neither work for apple nor care about apple as much as you want to imply. So, suck it.
In another post you did a google search and and used that as an argument towards your point which is "ipad 1 suck/crashes if you install ios5." I did something similar. I searched for "ipad 2 crash ios5." Here are the results. Following your logic, ipad 2 sucks with iOS5 too!! omg, someone called the press...
