    The easiest thing to do, assuming you decide you don't like it, is switch to one of the alternate launchers in the market. The most popular ones are Launcher Pro, ADW, Go Launcher, Zeam, etc.

    good luck.

    Whether it is slow and heavy to use, is for you to decide. I think motoblur is plenty fine as long as you're on 4.5.607/606. It does have a habit of eating up all your memory but that's actually fine, because that's what keeps everything visually smooth.

    On my new rooted Bionic, I just installed a new launcher (Go Launcher).

    Good luck.

    You can install the launcher or try a custom rom, if you're willing to root. Custom roms generally get rid of most of the blur framework, replacing it with mostly AOSP components(stock android).

    you dont have to remove the blur launcher if you have another launcher installed. but if you really wanna get rid of it, just go to /system/app and delete the home.apk after rooted.

    This might prevent you getting future updates. Just rename it, and, if and when a new over the air update is offered, rename it back before installing the update.

    ... and will cause issues if you factory reset the phone. If you delete home.apk you will either have to SBF or use car/desk stand to go around missing launcher, enable ADB and put it back on. Unnecessary pain IMO. If you install 3rd party launcher MotoBlur home does not load in memory and does not consume resources.
    If you switch to different launcher, most Moto widgets will not work. Some people find those useful. Your call.

    I really like GO Launcher with unrooted 607. Lot's of options to customize, and it works smooth and fast. The Motorola widgets aren't an available option with GO.
