    Hopefully this hasn't been done and if so not to the extend that this poll should cover. I'm curious as of right now which Launcher are you all preferring.

    Looks wise I enjoy ADW but for the pure speed and functionality I think LauncherPro is the only choice. I do think one of the two (or any) should have a theme repository much like Beautiful Widgets but that's for another day.

    Anyway, on with the poll!

    LauncherPro was perfect, but then Federico tried to make the app drawer faster, and now its still laggy as hell

    LauncherPro FTW indeed. I use the 3D drawer on a speed of 6, and it never FCs on me. It's far and away the fastest launcher I've ever used...it blows ADW away, and Helix and all the rest are well behind that.

    Motorola Droid running stock launcher -> :motdroidvert:

    Motorola Droid running LauncherPro -> dancedroid

    LauncherPro is the winner.

    Never tried the "launchers". Started out with Openhome, too many FC's, then Home++ I like quite a bit but started getting too many FC's.

    Have poured hours into Sweeterhome but worth it. I don't even have an app drawer anymore - I have a button from my home screen that launches a screen with my apps divided into 8 different categories, in most cases 8-12 apps in each. Swyping and scrolling isn't for me. A little more maintenance but I think funcitionally better, for me anyway.

    If I used a launcher, I'd probably have a screen with shortcuts created from AppsOrganizer.

    After reading this thread, I decided to try out LauncherPro. WOW. So cool.

    It makes me wonder what other cool customization things I don't know about for my Droid.
