    We need a good screencap utility so we can take easy screenshots of what we are talking about.

    From what I've read, we need root access for screenshots. Hopefully root will be achieved soon.

    The comments on Open Home Lite on Android Market are pretty low, makes me hesitant to install and use it. Lot of the themes seem to be focused on HTC models too.

    I was hesitant after installing open home lite too. But I made the jump and Im happy.

    I just installed a Theme call Open Home Skin - Android 2.0 and it makes the phone look identical with the stock device and uses the stock Icons which Im diggin. But it gives you 7 screens. Also if you think 7 is to many there is an option to change it to 5 or back to 3 even.

    Has anyone experienced lag after installing these themes? That seems to be what a lot of people are saying in the comments section, and this has made me hesitant to use them. I'd rather have a faster phone will the stock theme than a slower phone with a 3rd party theme.

    I purchased Open Home Full, I wanted to Like it. But it kept crashing whenever I would scroll through the application menu. I had to return it for a refund.

    Maybe I'll go back to it after it's updated to work with 2.0 better.

    When it worked, I loved it! 3 screens just isn't enough.

    Agreed, I'll give them some time to polish it up a bit before I try it out.

    Yeah I was really excited about Open Home so I got it and installed it and it looked great, installed a few themes and icon packs, setup 5 out of my 7 screens, everything was great but it ForceCloses too often for me. That was the ONLY issue. It was NOT laggy, it wasn't "stretched" or anything for the larger resolution, nothing like that. The ONLY issue was the random forceclosures. Once it is a bit more stable I will go for it.

    Also, please note that if you get the lite version, it is nowhere near as feature rich as the full version. The lite version only lets you use like 3 widgets and no icons or something if I remember right. The full version has a LOT of options and you can use all the normal widgets plus like 5 or 6 OpenHome exclusive ones.

    It is an awesome app and I'd have it installed now if it didn't FC so often
