I also use LauncherPro, and I think it has been faster and smoother for me.  No widget problems either.

topher622, I also was a LauncherPro user, but I actually like GB enough to discontinue.  If only there was a scrollable agenda widget.  I did like LauncherPro for the ability to change to 5X4 and some other customizations, but so far I am quite happy not using it.

Everything seems faster to load and more stable.  The only issue I have seen so far at all for me is the stock Timer.  If you dismiss the timer, it isn't cleared from the notification bar.  You have to start the timer again and cancel it to clear it.

     huff825,  I also like the new BlurHome very much.  I'm still using LauncherPro because I like to use custom icons on my home screen, but I realize I can do that with Desktop Visualizer.  The other thing I really like about LauncherPro is having three scrolling docks with 15 shortcuts available.  But if I hadn't already paid for LauncherPro Plus, I would be happy just using the GB BlurHome.

I totally agree, the dock on LP is outstanding and it would be nice to have on GB.

2 more random reboots today.  Both while using PowerAmp.  Never had random reboots on Froyo.

Regarding the comments on Launcher Pro and GB, I agree the stock GB Home works well.  I've used alternative launchers for years and was a big fan of Home++, then LP.  But, GO Launcher blows them all away IMO and it's free and has several very solid companion apps.  I could easily live with the GB Home, but there's just too much available in LP and GO launchers to do without.  - MarkC

This is weird.  I had the browser and maps/navigation open.  Battery was at 60%. Phone rebooted all by itself.  As I'm typing this, it randomly repeats words.

Just had my first crash.  I tried out the "sleep" mode you can go into rather than turning the phone off.  Once I went into sleep mode, it would never come out.  Had to do a battery pull.

I had a very serious lockup today. Probably the worst I have EVER had with this phone.

I was listening to music through the CAR with the phone in CAR dock mode. Suddenly the music stopped and the phone was non responsive. Next thing I know the phone is in a reboot loop with it sitting at the red eye. I gave it at least 10 minutes to reboot but it never came up so I finally did a battery pull and that brought it back. I have never had it do anything like that before. I have had a coulle of random reboots before and a few force closes but nothing that caused it to free during boot so I had to do a battery pull for it to reboot

Are you supposed to wake up from sleep mode in airplane mode and have to manually turn this off?  That seems wrong...  Tested again and this time it woke up correctly...  Wierd

Sleep is working fine for me, and what an excellent feature!
