Did Samsung port the iPhone UI to the Captivate or am I just seeing things?
That's the app drawer FYI.
Oh thank god! I hope it is close to the Sense UI.
in what way? You can just youtube the Galaxy S. i don't think its similar to the Sense UI.
its not similar to sense which i am pretty glad about. It's more similar to vanilla android as far as I can tell. I would prefer it to be stock android with no skin tbqh...

OHHHH That is quite amazing. I take it all back, I think It'll be good.
from what I've seen, it has the same "grid" layout of icons, right down to the main apps dock at the bottom of the screen.
I hope the Android team disables custom interfaces with 3.0. I'm getting sick of all the random custom UI's that are actually worse than vanilla. Personally I think the stock 2.1 / 2.2 UI is fine.
Maybe not disable custom interfaces, but make it so 3.0 allows them to be disabled? I think that would be a better route. But for some reason the individual phone makers arent open to the idea of vanilla UI they have to justify there phones as better with cool UI that can read your thoughts...
The only trouble I have with manufacture's custom UI is it slows the version upgrades timeline considerably. The custom UI screw with apps also. Long ago Windows had to lay out rules for menu format because of compatiblity. I think Gingerbread will be the release that will set a standard and you can change it with an app. If the manufactures changed the UI with an app, upgrades would be simple and app developers would also be more likely to write for android.
That screen cap is the home screen, not the app drawer. It is Samsungs take on the UI. If I wanted an iPhone i'd buy one. I don't care for it. I hope launcher pro will improve all this.
No it isn't, the OP's pic from the Samsung UI is the app drawer the home screen looks like this:
