    Yes, and an easy way to do that is to use Home Switcher: Home Switcher for Froyo - Android app on AppBrain

    You can install 10+ launchers and choose whichever you want with this app (and reverting to stock of course).

    I personally like ADW Ex the best. I liked LP except i dont like that you have to buy in order to use some functions (such as widget resizing, which i use alot).

    About the oc thing, my d2g can go up to 1.4ghz before it freezes. Each phone is different, just because its rated at 1 ghz doesnt mean that it cant go faster. The opposite is also true, some phones cant even run at the max rated speeds, it varies by processor.

    Yeah, LPP has a SWEET scrollable facebook widget. Twitter too but I don't care about twitter much.

    Well I bought both ADW and LPP, my ADW 'desktop' is all neat and organized but I'll try LPP when I have the patience to organize my apps all over again. I'm kinda bummed out you cannot change folder icons in LPP (at least AFAIK) and one of the things I love about ADW is the ability to set your icons to be bigger (mine are at 120%, with the names over them instead of under, with transparency, so they look a bit iPhoneish and I like it, the screen seems to 'fill' better than the default Android size). Plus there are great themes for ADW, I download some just because of the icons I can choose for my apps and folders. This one especially is a work of art - ADW.BuuF.Theme for Android | AppBrain.com

    Funny I've never seen any site mention it, seems like a solid contender and has been in development for like 2 years... SweeterHome - Start - sweeterhome.com

    I like GDE The Home Experience and Launcher Pro. I'm not sure how either of them are on battery life.

    Sweet theme. ADW certainly can do anything other launchers can, LPP is a bit more limited on customizations but AFAIK it's been growing.

    But I've had enough of ADW locking up, redrawing icons and taking 5 seconds for the redrawing and showing the app drawer so I switched to Launcher Pro because everything is always instant, plus it has awesome proprietary facebook, twitter, messaging and other widgets.

    Tomorrow at work when I have some free time I'll start reorganizing my apps. And surely give a try at Sweeter Home but Idk when :)

    Try using the juice defender app...and if you want, buy the ultimate juice paid version...it gives you a lot more options when you're rooted, but works well..
