    I'm looking for a ROM that's
    1. No Force Closes
    2. Fast
    3. Eye candy dancedroid

    I haven't tried Bugless or Cyanogen and when I'm on the forum that's probably the most 2 popular ROM's

    Everyone will tell you that they've experienced that with one ROM or another... and none of them are really good tests unless you run them for a significant amount of time. Most ROM's run great right after they're initially flashed.

    But, since you asked, my personal experience with Chevy's Simply Stunning has been the best (besides stock, which I'm guessing doesn't count since you wanted eye candy). I've never had any FC issues, it runs smooth with his kernels, and the eye candy is exactly what I like - simple blue smoked glass.

    I'll add one other... running stock w/ root and o/c has always been the most stable situation for me, but a lot of people don't like the look. If you want to try stock, I'd recommend 928Droid's Black Glass theme - it's plain awesome. I personally haven't been able to get it to run right over FRF84B, but most people have. It's a great look.

    I'm running the UD Extreme 3.0.0 (froyo) ROM and I love it. It is highly customizable and there are a lot of themes for it.
