OXED vs DeOXED.. any reason to choose one over the other?
Ok I think I know what the main difference is between an OXED and De-Oxed ROM, which is that the De-Oxed versions are 'themeable'.
Beyond being able to load a theme, is there any reason to choose a DeOxed over an Oxed or vice versa? Performance issues, compatibility with apps, anything?
Right now I'm leaning toward the Froyo OTA Oxed version but before I flashed it, figured I'd ask if it's worth considering the Deoxed. (I have no use for themes)

Well I don't know all that much about it but if there isn't any thing different besides theme abilities then why would anyone want a odexed Rom if there was the same Rom in a deodexed version. Why burn the bridge? I currently run the latest avalaunch 2.2 that is deodexed and then added a glass theme with custom icons over it. Also added custom splash and boot screens. The phone rocks to the point that I can't even bare to look at the wife stock evo with froyo.
I tried to convince her to let me root it before the update but she was fine with the way it was. Now until 2.2 root she has NO options.
