    My experience with mobile computers tells me that the built in apps are usually in the ROM. This is both good and bad. The good thing is that they do not eat the available space for storing your own applications, the bad thing is that you can not remove them with out re-flashing/re-writing the ROM.

    I have only played with the Droid briefly at the Verizon store, but I have had many mobile computers over the years and they have mostly been set up this way.

    You can download stock apps on a rooted Droid, but beware because some people have run into problems after doing so. Check out the Hacks forum for much more info.

    I can see Visual VM and Facebook as apps within Apps Organizer. I tried uninstalling Visual VM but the message came back "uninstall unsuccessful". My droid is not yet rooted.

    I have not come across any that have not been mentioned. As for removing the apps, There has been users reporting issues with removing the native apps...it's better to rename them if you want them not to show in the app drawer.

    I've been around windows for years and renaming this rather than a clean uninstall could result in things looking for that linked program but since it is renamed would result in a few errors not sure if this OS works the same way...

    Well if you go to settings>applications>manage>menu>filter>all and tthen select an app, "clear data" is an option. What does that do? I'm afraid to try it, haha
