I was that way in the beginning. But now I'm happy with what I got--Gingerbread-and really don't care either way. I don't know of any necessities in ICS. Jelly Bean is the big one, I understand, because of changes which couldn't be finished for ICS.
Anyway, it will probably be a few more months. Moto has an upgrade schedule page; you might not want to look at it.
An upgrade schedule page that hasn't been updated since the middle of February that says the update for the U.S. RAZR/MAXX is still in the planning stages. We know it's well beyond that because of the two very stable leaks. That upgrade schedule is worthless.
