    this 'feature' was not in final build. You root/flash to vanilla rom to remove sense

    you could alternatively install a launcher such as launcherpro from the market - once its installed you can use that as a default instead of sense (although I'm unsure whether Sense still runs in the background)

    Lots of people don't use sense, launcher apps like adw launcher offer a nicer and more customisable experience

    do you need to have rooted your phone to install a different launcher? if not, how do you go about installing it once downloaded from the market?

    once you have downloaded your chosen launcher from the market and it is installed (installs automatically), press your home button and a pop-up should ask you which launcher you would like to use, choose your downloaded one and away you go.

    however every time you press the home button the pop-up will always ask you which launcher to use, you can stop this by pressing the check-box before selecting launcher, but i'd suggest playing around first to see if you like it.

    You can always go back to the senseUI - just uninstall the launcher or change the default in the application defaults

    There is a handy app called home switcher, use it to swap between programs. I was playing around with Sense, Helix2 and Launcher pro before settling for Launcher Pro, even though it's a beta it runs fine and very very fast.

    I assume Sense is still running in the background, anyway to stop that or does the launcher rely on Sense running?

    Guys,

    Hi, this is my first post, although quite a bit of posts read.
    Which launcher to use so that my Desire would look like Nexus One?
    Do I need a launcher, or is there a way of uninstalling Sense UI totally and it would give me pure Android.

    Regards.

    Not sure if Sense can be uninstalled but the N1 look is the default Android look without any launchers.
