for the record i have grown quite accustomed to Widgetlocker. i have gotten into the habit of tapping my phone's power/sleep button to be greeted by not only the current weather but a nice five-day forecast, too. even with the ZTE Merit's limited hardware (underclocked to 480MHz currently) it seems to do well with Widgetlocker.
