    Launcher Pro has 7 screens and 3 app docks. And if you are bored you can send the home screens one direction and the app docks the other. Lol. ;)

    AnderWeb, the developer of ADW Launcher, noted that anything more than five homescreens may cause FCs due to some kind of cache limitation or something. Obviously, seven screens still work fine for the most part--it's why updated Sense sports seven--but it may be why Google themselves didn't increase it beyond five.

    I use six, but that's because two of my homescreens are very sparsely populated (two widgets each) since I like a minimalist, classy look. ADW Launcher's scrollable dock eliminates the need for most app shortcuts, anyway.
