    :welcome:

    I prefer Launcher Pro as my home launcher replacement, but to each their own.

    As far as upgrades - are you considering rooting or do want want to stick with stock?

    Welcome. I came from an eNV2 to a Droid. Couldn't be happier.
    My tip: Read through the boards. There are a lot of tips and ideas here. There's a nice Application board with idas for various applications, that's how I found a lot of mine. Plus the Screenshots of peoples Droid desktops? discussion, others would ask what the app or widget was and they would reply (that's how I found out what a widget was).

    thinking about checking out LauncherPro. Especially after reading around on here. What are the main differences?

    The feature I like the most about it is the scrollable "dock bar" at the bottom; you can load it up with 15 apps! Really saves space on the home screens. The widgets with the Plus (paid) version are cool as well. I'll be honest I have not tried too many other launcher replacements. I got LP very shortly after getting my droid and to me it is the default :D
