    I was just wondering if Serendipity 5.8 ROM supports the landscape homescreen like Cog 3.04 does. I really like that feature.

    Well, it's not the ROM that goes into landscape on the homescreen, it's the launcher. The default launcher for serendipty, the AOSP launcher, does NOT go into landscape while on the homescreens. However if you use launcher pro or another launcher you can have that functionality.

    Precisely. I use LauncherPro - I quickly restore everything after flashing because I'm so used to the functionality it's jarring to see how things come out of the box!

    Another vote for LauncherPro (donate!). I too turn off landscape in the homescreens, so it's always locked to portrait.
