    I know there have been plenty of topics and polls asking this question. However, there are now many new launchers so I would like a bit more updated opinions. I'm using adw ex but I looked at the xperion arc ui launcher and it looks fine but has a little annoying loading problem for me. I also used lp for a while but it tends to lag after a month or two of using it

    I have been an avid LP user since it dropped and this latest update seems to have it running very smooth thus far.
    I am pretty much hooked on LP, but a few weeks back I tried GO Launcher and was very impressed with it ... I may have to give it another try one of these days.

    LPro forever... remember to use the terminal hack "echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop" to help with loading issues and redraw...

    Just switched over to GO Launcher. I really like the i*hone style folder icons that show the first 4 apps in the folder... if I could only switch that over to LPP then I would use LPP. Trying this out for now though.

    Launcherpro is the best in my opinion. Go launcher comes second. ADW comes third.

    What's your favorite home replacement ?
    this was asked on the 17th (by the original poster), so not that old. Might want to review that post too.

    I'm glad this has been asked, I went back to the stock home screen and had fun "designing" my screens, but would like to try some others to see which I like. I had Launcher Pro but the refresh time coming back from an app or browser took too long. Stock has been much faster.

    +1 for GoLauncher. From what I hear, Colorize Widgets is a good replacement for the LP widgets.

    Back to stock motoblur launcher now.
    I was using LP for a while.
    I even had ADW on my phone with LP, and noticed some weird things happening, so picked LP over ADW, and uninstalled ADW.

    I hear if you don't update LP in a long time, it can "expire" and prevent you from using it.

    I have tried Home++, Sense, ADW, and LP+. LP+ has worked like a charm for me, and haven't really even wanted to try something else. I have downloaded Go Launcher to try it out, but haven't done anything with it yet.

    I used LPP for a long time but was experiencing awful FC issues and lag. Switched to Go and I've been very happy with it. In the recent update, they have added a couple widgets, so I am betting they will start expanding those soon.
