    search for "home replacement" to see what you are getting into. if the ONLY thing you want is more screens though, go to the market app and search "Launcher+"

    Launcher+ just adds more home screens. The dev that created it also created home++, which provides a nifty little bar at the bottom that you can select different icons to put on [Not FULLY configurable yet, so there's a certain list of things it can launch, but a totally customizable one is promised.

    There are other home replacements like PandaHome, Openhome, aHom [not sure if that's still around], GDE, dxTop

    Each one offers unique customization options. Take a look at them [as you already said you will] and test a few out. Most of the paid ones offer a Lite or Beta version for free so you can get a feel for it.

    Personally, I use home++:)

    There's an app called "Home Switcher." Using that you can easily switch from one home to another. You have the option of either launching a home (pressing the home button takes you to your default) or set one as a default. I'm using GDE right now, but I like Home++.

    Yup. It's still in BETA, but many people agree it's just as good or better than apps that are being charged money for.
