    so far i'm using the little droid guys, but i'm curious as to what everyone else is using. i didn't see too much that grabbed my eye in the market but maybe one of you has something that appeals to me more.

    so lemme see!

    I use whatever I want. Downloaded a red/black icon pack, but not every icon I had on my homescreen had an icon available, and some of the ones that did, I didn't like. But with ADW Launcher, if you long-press on an icon and then hit Edit, you can change the icon to whatever you want. So I just surf Google Images until I find something I want to use for an icon, save it to the phone, and then assign it to that icon. I don't ned no steeking icon packs, LOL!

    hahaha, right on.

    i was using launcher pro, what's the major difference between that and ADW?

    seems it's kind of 50/50 on who prefers what.

    I used to us LPP, but am an avid fan of ADW EX now. Try it out and see which one you like better.

    As far as icons go, I like the ones that come with this theme!

    I used to use Launcher Pro, but switched to ADW because I was having Force Closes multiple times a day from LP. It was something to do with the autorotate. So I switched, and I like the themes available in the Market for ADW, they make a nice base to start from, so I've just stayed with it.

    I use the same icons and love them. They were the first and only ones I installed.

    Using Launcher Pro and never had an issue even once with a Force Close.

    However, I did disable auto rotate. I'm not a fan of that feature with icons switching around all the time. That seems to give most of the headache. Anytime I see someone with LauncherPro problems, inevitably they have auto rotate enabled.

    I like autorotate, so that is a problem with LP that I couldn't deal with. I have since found that you can disable the homescreen autorotate while leaving it working on the browser (where I want to use it most often), but I'm hooked on ADW now, so I'm not going to switch back right now.

    Grow your own. I used the penguin icon pack you listed and an icon pack I found HERE to create this:

    [​IMG]

    Use any good editing software. I use PaintShopPro, but Gimp is free. Yes there is a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, you can create stuff like this in a few minutes (longer if you're OCD and gotta get it just right, like me).

    And before you ask, sorry, I won't make more. This is just an example. While I'm decent at it, it can be tedious work. I've gotta have a passion for it. My penguin passion has peeked and my probability of perpetuating the project has passed. Sorry
