    I've personally used Home++ and the 2.1 launcher. Ended up going back to stock because of crashes and speed issues. That's just me though.

    If you don't want to spend money use panda home. It works well most of the time its better than only 3 home screens. I'm using panda home and i'm gonna wait and see if 2.1 gives us more than 3 home screens.

    I've used GDE with great success since about 2 weeks after I got my Droid(I got mine at launch). I'm happy with it and haven't run into a lot of the problems others have run into. It runs fast and smooth and I've only had 2-3 force closes since I installed it. But I also have never used any of the other home replacements so I can't really compare it to the others, I just know it has worked very well for me.

    edit: and I traced those force closes to apps such as More Icons.

    No contest, GDE is the best and most stable.

    I've used Home++, SweeterHome and the 2.1 Launcher... They all have their ups and down. While they all offer additional 'perks' from the Stock they are also FAR more unstable... Unless you particularly NEED the extras IMHO you're better off sticking with stock at least until after the 2.1 update (which will give you the benefits of Launcher 2.1).

    The biggest problem with these home replacements is there are inconsistencies that cannot be traced to specific devices or programs... so one that will work for you will not work for someone else. Stick it out for the next week and see if one is even needed after 2.1.

    GDE with Hero theme, I can count on my hand the force closes. It can be laggy with alot of things running, but I have had a few updates and it is pretty fast and lag free now.
