    I use to love Home ++ but lately its been crashing like crazy. I was gonna try GDE but I read some of the comments and that seems to have crashing issues also. Im tired of all the force closes. I have one widget and Im only using five home screens. Why is it closing so much

    I have had zero problems with GDE. Been using it since mid-November.

    I, too, have found GDE to be very stable.

    Pandahome worked perfectly for about two months and then started force closing. I had to boot in safe mode to remove it from my Droid. Twice.

    I also use GDE and have no issues with it at all.

    I once had some issues with GDE, but uninstalled and reinstalled. All was good. However, I'm in love with dxtop's 5-icon app dock, so I've been using it exclusively for the past few weeks. No issues. It helps to know my config when I say that. ( * = paid app)

    Widgets in use:
    -- * Executive Assistant+ : (4x3) tabbed~ shows SMS, GMail, upcoming cal events, incoming calls, 20 most recent gReader items
    -- Audio Manager (large): shows ALL sound settings
    -- * More Icons: smaller icons taking less space for more apps on screen
    -- * Beautiful Widgets: Vibrate, WiFi, GPS
    -- Data Counter Widget: keeps tabs on Wifi & Verizon data transfers
    -- S2 Calendar Widget: twice, showing current and next month
    -- * Weather Bug Elite
    -- Brightness Level Widget: one tap dim/brightening of screen, by percentage
    -- DailyBibleVerse Widget: auto refreshes daily (4x1) (sometimes slows screen redraws when returning to home)

    Always running in background (stuff I added):
    -- * PhoneLog: logs in/out calls to default gCalendar
    -- * G-Backup Full: copies full text of SMS; pics, videos, call log items, MMS into respective gmail directories/labels you configure
    -- * My BackUp Pro (for restore purposes, if ever necessary)
    -- Missed Call Reminder: customizable sounds for successful app installs, low battery and more
    -- * aFirewall: blacklist phone/SMS
    -- Screebl Lite: keeps the screen on in an intelligent fashion
    -- Google Voice
    -- GDialer (to make GV calls thru carrier, when data connection is flaky)
    -- Not Call Log: to return me to home screen immediately after each call terminates
    -- SMS PopUp: only SMS app which relates to Google Voice (reply to phone # button auto-dumps you into GV for composing)
    -- Date & Day Widget (by ch13fw)
    -- Rings Extended: pick from ALL available sounds, regardless of app (does an FC sometimes, but I can live with it as it only happens from within sound picker screen)
    -- Calendar Pad: configured to show one-week view of my Communications gCal only- great for weekly reviews

    + Sometimes running:
    -- * Mobile Package Tracker
    -- Asurion's AddressBook beta for Android 2
    -- * Note Everything Pro (when I "sticky" a note to status bar, or create a status bar alarm)
