    This was the one last thing I had to test before I bought the phone. I don't like Motorola's customizations and LauncherPro pretty much hides all of it. I installed it on the demo phone at the store with no problems.

    Being my first Android phone I have to say the stock isn't bad, none of the jerkiness that was reported. Plus resizing widgets is very handy.

    LOVE how Launcher Pro works with the X. You thought LP was fast before? Just amazing. I will die a happy woman now.

    goldsquare, it's basically a more customizable replacement for the home screen you see. Play with it a bit and then install Launcher Pro and you'll see. You might not notice much difference until you've used Motorola's for a while, though.

    Not really a launcher pro fan on the X. Was on the droid but not on the X. You loose the ability to use motorla widgets...and it takes a bit longer for the widget selection screen to come up...I do like the 3d launcher though.
