    Well gingerbread is not out, so how do you know you don't like it? Current official release is 2.2.1 Froyo.

    no problem. I think it will come out in the next 2-3 months.

    It's ok to use gingerbread themes if you like them. Its just a theme to make your phone look like the new update-which is not out. If they make your phone buggy, just uninstall.

    I use Launcher Pro and like the screen transitions.
