    Was using Helix1 and it was good. But good in the sense that I hadn't tried anything else and I liked having 5 screens. Just dl'd LauncherPro and it is scary fast in comparison on my droid.

    I like that you can set which of your screens is the "home" (couldn't do that with helix i don't think) and the screen preview, although an option on helix, is very nice

    Tried out Launcher Pro and ADW and I'm leaning more toward using ADW as my main one. Runs smoother for me.

    I'm wondering...
    -is there a way to view all your home screens at once like you can on Sense, by hitting the home button twice in a row or by pinching in ?
    -what are the options under previews settings: sense prieviews and clean screen mode? Checking either of them on and off doesn't seem to have any effect ?

    On ADW, you have to change the home button binding in the UI Settings of ADW to be able to see previews.

    I was leaning towards launcher pro until I found the 6 shortcuts when you drag up the launcher button on ADW. I'm now using ADW
    I did not know that good find.

    Hey is anyone noticing their battery draining quicker while using ADW Launcher? I've been using for the last 3 days and my battery seems to not last as long not sure if the launcher has anything to do with it.

    my battery did drain quickly yesterday, but also had heavy browser use (and that ate a good chunk)

    LauncherPro <3 I love the bottom bar, runs so nice, only wish they could figure out a way to enable HTC widgets in a launcher...=/

    The bottom bar is so much better than HTC's thing though, srsly why do they have Phone so big? The Neon skin for beautiful widgets + a night picture from a big city=perfection.

    Anyone know why I can't find HelixLauncher2 on the market on my Eris? Wanted to try it. =/

    like both launcherpro and adw but love all the customizations of adw, but have noticed it draining my battery more but gunna give it another day or two and switch to another see if it is adw or not

    I'm permanently back with Launcher Pro. I noticed the dev did yet another feature update last night. All the recent updates, combined with ADW draining my battery and just generally not being quite as snappy on my droid, sold me to stick with launcher pro. Best home replacement on the market, bar none, IMO. No FC's, great performance, lots of updates, dev listens to the public, it's all good.
