    Do you guys think it will be possible to turn of touchwiz, and just go with the standard android 2.1?

    If it's not possible on the Behold II. I highly doubt whether it will be possible on the Galaxy S.

    Even if you root it and install a new rom?

    Im Sure installing panda home or some other home replacement app should do the trick. I currently use panda home

    I'm able to easily turn off default "pantheon home" and replace it with "GDE" on my galaxy spica running android 2.1.

    This needs no root or what and kills and takes over pantheon which is sluggish and keeps hogging memory in the background.

    The same should be true for Galaxy S as well I believe ;)

    Actually turning it off would be a bad idea, since touchwiz 3 is much better than even sense ui

    Home replacements only mask the OEM's UI. For it to be truly free, you would have to root but like the poster above me said, this is touchwiz 3.0 which looks to be a ton better than touchwiz 2.0 (on the Behold II) so I would probably just keep it like it is.

    BTW - Knowing how bad Samsung locks down their phones, rooting and running custom roms might be hell.
