specifically the Neural Network, my favorite one!
yes i has live wallpapers, but they're a memory hog and I just stick with static myself.
Not to mention that there are not too many that are actually useful.
I dont care about it being useful, I just like the look of it.
You do have them, but one of the Google ones (Water) doesn't let you interact with it by pressing on the water - yet it works as designed on replacement homescreens, like Helix Launcher.
All the others appear to work as they should, including the many freely downloadable ones from Market.
Is it me or is the 2.1 home screen incredibly slow and buggy? It also seems to be unprotected from Android's own memory management - so you can find it unloads and has to start up again, repopulating the panels with icons and widgets. That's just silly. Surely that, above all else, should be made to remain loaded at all times!!
I'm fed up with the default home screen to that point that I uninstalled the laucher.apk altogether and replaced it with slidescreen (previously I used Home++). I hate the laggy movement and stuttering ... it should be smooth like it is on Home++. I sure hope 2.2 brings the smooth transitions and some animation when switching portrait-landscape modes. And what wee need is zooming in when editing words we type because it's a real pain selecting that tiny space between two letters ... I'm always missing it and have to open the physical keyboard and using the d-pad to navigate to where I want.
EDIT: Forget live wallpapers, just make the UI work better.
