why do gamers complain constantly?
I'm comparing to the 360 myself, where bringing up a list of friends or the current download takes a second or two after hitting the A button to select it. The OS for that has arguably become a lot more complex over time too, incorporating voice and movement navigation along with many additional features, working on the same old hardware as well as new hardware. This is especially when you compare the old, original blade style OS to the current Kinect Friendly OS.
I feel too that the 3DS's menus are a tad slow. See someone come online and want to see if they're playing Mario Kart online? Gotta wait to head back to the main menu, then load up the Friend List, which all in all takes a fair amount of time before you're back in the game either continuing on or heading to the online mode.
It somewhat discourages the player from using these features too often, though I do appreciate that simply hitting the HOME key lists the person who just came online at the top so that's something I guess.
I have the opinion that players would use Miiverse to post screenshots and what not more for games without native Miiverse support (such as NSMBU or Nintendo Land) due to the time taken to do so.
Don't get me wrong, I'm overall very pleased with the console and it's getting prime time very regularly, but this for me is the #1 area that lets it down.
