It's basically the interface that you use the phone with.
Okay, thanks. Since that's important I'll look into launchers early on.

So basically, when you load something like adw, or launcher pro, you do still have the touchwiz launcher, but when you set it to default, the phone will use the launcher program you downloaded instead.

So if I set some other launcher as the default Touchwiz goes away, but does it still use CPU and RAM?


If I don't want to use that launcher application anymore, maybe I'm bored of it, maybe I don't like how it works.....just like a replacement text messaging app, all I have to do is either uninstall it, or set it to no longer be the default launcher program, and 2 seconds later my phone works however it is then set to.

Maybe I can find an article that compares the features of the various launchers.
