    For bookmarks, I use "Live Bookmarks". It's free and it creates a folder that you just click and it lists all of your bookmarks.

    For calendar, I have "Smooth Calendar". That lists your next 3 appointments as well as today's date. You can press it to open up the calendar. Sometimes I use "S2 calendar widget" if i feel like putting a 2x1 calendar on the screen that shows the whole month.

    I don't use a music widget...I just open up the stock music player or 3 (cubed) player. Cubed is great and even my iPhone friends get envious when they see it.

    I use Pure Calendar widget for my calendar (I also use it on Sense UI because the HTC Calendar widget is messed up, displaying all day events a day too early, and it shows only one event.) I don't use music or bookmark widgets. For bookmarks, I have a bookmarks folder and I just add icons for a few of them that I check most often.

    Well, I looked at my Sense UI's seven screens and I had nothing on one. On the second, I had the full screen Bookmark widget which I didn't use that much. On the third, I had the Peep widget which I did use. On the 4th I had the toggle widgets which I used, and the People widget which I never really used at all. So, the Peep widget was really the only Sense UI widget I was actively using. I did have one Sense homescreen with the Music Widget and Pandora Widget, but since I've been using the Tasker app (in beta still) which performs a Profile task to auto-launch a menu of Music apps when it senses a headphone connected which I then just select the media app I want, I just never used those media widgets anymore.

    So, until the 2.1 official upgrade comes out, I am now experimenting using the default Android Home launcher with just three homescreens (to see if its really faster) along with Beautiful Widgets ($$) since I like its 1x4 clock/weather widget over the Sense 2x4 clock/weather widget and it comes with the toggle widgets I use, but it doesn't launch the calendar when I select the date probably due to the Sense UI calendar being native. The other widgets I use are Android Agenda widget and the gTasks widget.

    On 2.1 the stock music widget works well, it doesn't display album art though. If you use mixzhing, those widgets are pretty nice
