    Because apparently many people experience a lot. Such as myself. See the many threads

    I wasn't trying to be cocky. I'm serious. What is the culprit so I know what to avoid?

    It's not just Helix 2, it's pretty much all launchers/home replacements with the 3d app drawer. Just not worth it to me, but more power to ya if you don't have any lag.

    Wait till you see the Launcher 2 I've got planned for V1.1, no lag at all, extremely smooth switching between homescreens :)

    I run UDNE rom but I tossed in the Cyanogen launcher2 because of the 5 icons across... its really doesnt lag much at all, its super smooth for me.

    I'm using Helix 2 and have no lag at all. It's very quick and responsive. Although i'll always welcome an upgraded version if Pete comes out with it.

    I too have NO lag that I can see AT ALL with Helix2 running on BBv1.0. I can't wait to see what's faster than this..

    I'm actually going to be playing around with a bunch of Home apps today (I don't have much responsibility at work :D). Got the idea from the Home launcher thread. I'm going to see which I like best. Can't wait for Pete's version though.

    Lags I experience with non-Home launchers have to do with launching apps (particularly dialer) rather than intra-screen transitions, which are always fast. Sometime returning to the home screen on hitting the home button can lag a bit too. I'm talking about Helix1, mostly.

    I don't see how anyone can experience lag with this new ROM. But then again....I'm a noob.

    I didn't see any "lag" per se with Helix 2... I just don't like it as much as Helix 1. The app drawer in Helix 1 (and other 2.0-based launchers) can be "flung" to one end or the other, and continues to scroll and slow down when you let go. It's a nice effect that I got used to. Helix 2 (and other 3D launchers) stop scrolling as soon as you let go, so you have to scroll exactly to where you want it.

    With 60 app icons in my launcher [Helix2] i can generate enough inertia with one swipe to get to the bottom no problem. I use Helix2 because it is just beautiful. I love the 'fly-in, fly-out' effect. I remember when the 3d launcher was just hitting the scene and I tried it on every rom with the same results: FC's and boot-loops. It was great to have it stable on my previous rom but it was soooo slow. Now with BB1 and HL2 running smooth I have never been happier with my D. And Pete is making it faster now? WOW- effing awesome.

    I will say this newest BB is the best in terms of lag, etc. I'm running Helix1 on it and it has been great.

    After you install it, hit the home button. It should give you a choice between Home and Helix.
