    Now I know why so many people install task killers. Not gonna do it yet tho. My Droid 1 was empty compared to my Dinc 2.

    From my DINC 2

    Ha... ha..
    The bloat doesn't seem to affect the performance on our 2 dinc2's yet.. it just clutters the app drawer.

    posted tomorrow using the space time continuum app on my D1...

    The Droid Inc2 doesn't have many bloatware apps that run in the background. In fact i'll guarantee if you d/l a task killer for the inc2 you'll just kill your battery faster trying to turn off processes that don't really do anything.

    The others are correct. Do NOT install a task killer. You WILL kill your battery.

    Yeah, I know and don't plan to do it. I did however load GO Launcher EX so that I can hide a lot of junk in the App Drawer. One thing that GO Launcher's app drawer has is a Running Apps tab. When you click on it, sometimes it will show 3 pages of shi, uh, stuff running in the background. Stuff I've never used and probably never will.
