    So, I have Zeam, Launcher Pro +, SLideScreen, SparkBETA & Zune Home launchers. I love Zeam and Launcher Pro +, but they are extremely similar to the stock home. I have no need for multiple screens and love having just one. SlideScreen is awesome but it crashes wayy too much. Zune Home is more of a basic, i like it but got bored with it quite quickly. I'm suuper in love with SparkBETA, it has the most beautiful UI IMO but because its in beta, its very laggy.

    So do you guys know of any interesting home launchers I have not stumbled upon yet? Any suggestions? You guys ROCK!! :)

    LauncherPro all the way, you can customize LauncherPro's dock and all the other stuff too.

    Do you flash ROMs at all? MIUI is the big new thing and it has a really customized launcher in it.

    Also "Itching Thumb" has a launcher component - its most known for giving palm-like multitasking.

    In particular order of my preferred launcher:

    LauncherPro (plus)
    Zeam Launcher
    ADW.Launcher
    LiveHome (for less than 2.1 Android)
    GDE

    The first 3 supports scrollable widgets which is a big deal for me, LiveHome has the support coming soon. And LauncherPro's notification swipes and indictators are top notch, nothing comes close to it, not even ADW's Notifier (that I bought).

    I also played with PandaHome, OpenHome, aHome and PandaHome isn't bad and the rest kind of suck.

    Also there is aHome and Panda I think - but those are older and may be defunct (I don't really know)

    +1 LauncherPro

    But I am open to new things....

    Also someone mentioned Itching Thumbs earlier. Wow I thought that app was cool!! BUt unfortunately still very beta-ish in a bad way (at least on my phone). I cant wait for this app to reach some more maturity. I even suggested some other place (i cant remember where) that Android should buy out the UI design, optimize it with all there programing resources, and release it as the stock multitasking interface for Gingerbread. Man would that be something awesome....
