    I use HelixLauncher...Seems to be the most stable for my MotoDroid. It can get slow at times (when memory is low) and will crash if you have too many running widgets for it to deal with.

    Launcherpro is awesome. I ran helix for some time but I think launcherpro is way better.

    there is home++, and it comes with a very nice display clock
    but you cant set your own mini shortcuts on the bottom along side the menu bar
    i'd say helix or launcher pro

    LauncherPro, hands down! I was using Home++, then HelixLauncher, then Sweeter Home 2, then HelixLauncher again, then I tried ADW.Launcher, but have given up playing with any of the others because LauncherPro is (IMO) the absolute best.

    i agree with everyone else. LauncherPro. It's snappy and fast. I also Like Launcher+.

    Thanks everyone...I have tried all you mentioned and I think launcher pro is the way to go..
    Where does everyone get that big digital flip clock I always see on the screen shots?

    It is called Weather & Toggle Widget. Here is a link to it on AppBrain: Weather & Toggle Widget - Android app on AppBrain

    I have not used it as I am currently using Retro Clock Widget: Retro Clock Widget - Android app on AppBrain and like this one better. It is smaller (takes up less space on screen and on internal storage). It also is free as compared to $1.99 for the bigger widget.

    Also, if you haven't done this already, I strongly suggest following these instructions: http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/56324-appbrain-post-your-profile-link-here-droid.html and using AppBrain. It is by far the best way to search, browse, install, and uninstall apps.

    If you set up an alternate email account, you can have a password reset email sent to the alternate account.
