    Because, unlike some, I actually like the HTC widgets that come with the phone and home replacements don't allow HTC widgets. Any others with me?

    That's why I stay with Sense. I much prefer the time/weather widget that comes with the phone to any others I have found.

    Tried Home for a while. Didn't notice much of a performance increase and missed my HTC Widgets

    Not true, I haven't found a decent looking one that doesn't cost money. Which I think is a waste.

    I don't like them because they slow me down. I'm all about speed and stability and, from my experiences, it takes a toll on both.

    I stick to Home and I've been happy with it for four months now.

    Mine seems to work better with them truthfully. I can swipe left and see my twitter feeds, then swipe right twice and change songs, then left again and go to the market. It's all about how you set it up.

    There are no available Mobile widgets to turn on or off. Yes I can hold the end button but I'd rather have a widget for it. Therefore I stick with Sense.

    I'm all about aesthetics and Sense is stable enough for me. I can't live without the settings toggle widgets, the calendar widget, the bookmarks widget, and the picture album widget.

    I rooted and flashed a vanilla rom, so sense is done and uses no memory for me. Do a google search for beautiful widgets apk download

    I'm a big fan of Sense. It is one of the reasons I bought the phone. Love the widgets and I would load a sense Rom on a rooted phone.

    I was gonna say "I envy you" then I realized you were using Home++.

    I'm just in it for the stock Android. Give me the root and I probably won't be on here anymore with issues.

    So..for everyone's sake, someone find a root.

    Ya, root would be nice.

    I tried the home apps Andrizoid posted, they were fun to use and to try out, but Sense just works better and faster for me. Plus I use most of the HTC widgets on my screens.

    I think that the fact that HTC/Android allows us to do so much customizing is incredible (no pun intended). I have never had a phone with so much allowed freedom.

    No offense Andrizoid :)
