    The new home screen selector ( press home while on the main screen )
    The calendar app, I like the busy/free time view for the month
    - The calendar agenda widget ( very nice! ) you can scroll like the twitter app
    Navigation - Awesome! When I got to my destination, it automatically switched to street view and showed my house, too cool.
    updated Market
    Everything seems more responsive,snappy
    they changed the vibe-touch to react differently to different touches
    gmail update
    browser update - navigate with the diff views of pages visited.
    android power control widget
    desk clock

    And now i have access to Gesture Search to play around with.

    And, the killer is that it seems like it's automatically managing apps similar to what a task killer would do. Either that or when you exit all the way out of apps on 2.1, some actually leave memory. Not confirmed. Gonna let it ride for a week or so without any task killers.

    edit: and the camera app has improved. lots of options.

    I use dxTop so the Sense upgrades don't do much for me...

    I do like the auto-closing of folders when I launch an app from them - I hated having to close them manually...

    I also like the new settings bar showing wifi/gps/etc. Again - Sense had the nice widgets but now I have something just as nice looking in dxTop.

    The new market is a nice improvement, but they are missing "starred" apps that I want to keep an eye on but not immediately download.

    I'm sure I'll find more to like as I go along...

    I'm using Home and I love it. Admittedly, I didn't give Sense more than 20 minutes to prove itself. I just like Home better. I don't need the extra screens. I also find it faster, on both 1.5 and 2.1.

    Nope, no FC's at all, but to be honest I wasn't having them on 1.5 either. I wonder what could be different...

    I like the speed of the native home as well, but dxTop just has too many features that I use every day...

    I like it. Only thing missing is the News Widget that was on display for the HTC Legend/Desire.

    - Like no heptic feedback when you press the hard keys. :D
    - Working YouTube App
    - Google Voice doesn't FC.

    I was an idiot and didn't backup my address book, but between gmail, my old blackberry and facebook, my address book is neat and clean

    I'm also using Home. It it so cool, and when using home instead of Sense on 2.1, you get the cool fade in effect rather than a swipe effect to the home screen.

    Is that an option? I actually like that feature, since those keys don't seem to register 100% of the time when I press them...

    It's actually not the button's fault. It's Android fault for not acknowledging the press and sending the vibrate command. It's like clicking your mouse in windows when the hour glass is spinning and Windows doesn't acknowledge it because it's too busy doing other stuff. Hopefully in 2.1, because everyone is saying it's faster and more responsive than 1.5, you won't notice this issue as often.
