    not really...but I also dont like things that add no functionality and can actually steal cpu cycles for what is basically nothing but eye candy you will use the first time you open it and forget about it.

    I must admit I'm not too concerned one way or the other about live wallpapers. So, no I'm not upset about it.

    not at all.

    i wouldn't find myself using the live wallpapers anyway, i like my background.

    I have "2.1 Launcher" (thanks to RinTinTigger), but would like to see 5 homescreens still, though i only use 3. I hope they sort out the menu since I have the 2.1 menu, but during landscape, the buttons are off.

    Overall, can't wait to get this update.

    Where is the desire in this exactly? It's like having a screen-saver on a TV. Useless.

    Most every post I read about people installing 2.1 on their Droids included them quickly tiring of Live Wallpapers and turning them off. All they do is slow down the OS and drain your battery.

    Yep, they are about as pointless as the 3d launcher and other 'flashy' things... nice at first but then pointless

    Well... some people are just more easily entertained:icon_ devil: lol, Personally I need my phone for business and prefer function or form/looks but to each their own.

    If we get 5 or not doesn't matter to me. I'll use what we get.

    I'm glad they didn't give us this wallpaper stuff. I don't want it. :)

    I too can live without them but the launcher and homescreen situation is annoying. If they aren't included I'm sure there will be a new port in a few days, if that.

    I'm running a 2.1 rom and I can use the live wallpapers. Dumped them after 10 minutes. Bogged everything down.
