    I use it and like it a lot. It offers quite a bit of customization. Of course, it does require a little set up work and getting used to, but once your familiar with it, it works great.

    Have been using LauncherPro for a while now. Still my favorite launcher. Features galore and just solid as a rock. Can't beat LauncherPro. Looking forward to Fede's future work on this launcher. You wont be disappointed running LauncherPro. :)

    I had to download the app 'home switcher for froyo' to swap between launcher pro and the original homescreen.

    the home button will give you a choice, if you hit use as default, you can go into manage apps and clear the default

    Been using it and I love it that I end up paying for it. Totally worth it.

    I would definitely encourage anyone with a Droid Pro to switch to LauncherPro just for the battery savings alone.

    I've used 4 home screens on my Pro:
    Stock Homescreen: Takes up 10-12% of my battery usage
    GO Launcher: Takes up 12-15%
    ADW Launcher: Takes up 8-10%
    LauncherPro: Takes up 3-4%

    I used each of these for 2+ days, and when I saw how little LP contributes to battery depletion I set it as default.

    Wow, good work with the stats man.
    I decided against LP although I'm a paid customer when I found that the default launcher is quite snappy, but if LP would actually use LESS power then so be it.
    Love LP.

    I have paid LP but it started lagging. I bought the new ADW+ and it's got a few more features and does not lag.

    Edit: however, the author of LP is supposed to be doing a full rewrite so I might switch back later. It's nice to have choices.

    Mine is the other way around LP runs a lot smoother compare to ADW+. I love all the new ADW+ features though.
