On resolution, BJL does, I think, have it right. You won't see much of a difference between the S2's 6 and 12 mp output because the 6mp output is downsized from the reconstructed 12mp output - and thus has most of the super CCD benefit built it.
I thought some of the other comments were a bit picky, such as the number of exposed screw heads. I have honestly not noticed them, and in a list of 100 key points, I'd rank it at 101 ::
On menu systems etc, if you come from a Canon, you might get confused, but honestly, I think that the S2 has about the best in the business, very easy to use.
Overall, I think this was a resonable review, but one that, to (probably mis-)quote Alexander Pope, damned with faint praise on occasions. But then I am biased, as I own a S2
