    So I was thinking about swapping from the standard layout to the 4x4 layout.
    When I went into Preware I saw there were 5 different versions....

    Which do you like the best and why?

    Version 3 (onlinespending) totally rocks dude.

    V3
    Icons are the biggest of all 4x4 versions.

    I use version 5, because I like the spacing.

    I also like the spacing better than the larger icons. Looks less cluttered.

    V3 with the larger icons, glass effect, with the arrow, fade, and icon titles removed.

    Oh yeah, you gotta use the glass effect. Beautiful.

    Most definitely.
    The theme is better than the patch though.
    Check out 'Glass effect with 3D icons theme'. It glass effects more than just the launcher. Very slick.. .

    Yep, he made the zip available so if you want to incorporate it into your own theme instead of just using the glass theme by itself, it's very easy to do.

    Same for me. I like the larger icons & minimal spacing. Some app titles now wrap to the second line, with the longest ones getting cut off. I have 2 examples, but it doesn't bother me to see this:
    Send My
    Location for

    The
    Helicopter

    I also recommend the "Hide Quick Launch Bar in Launcher Remix" patch. Basically turns 4x4 into 4x5. The H.Q.L.B.i.L.Only patch does the job as well, but if you ever want to edit your QL apps, you have to remove it.

    +1 on glass effect -- The theme "Glass Effect Suite" by SqyArc looks really nice with the effect carrying over to menus, splash screens, universal search, etc. Try the launcher-only patch if you don't want to change your theme.

    I actually use v4, and I love it.

    I think the icons in v3 are just slightly too clustered. Plus v4 has the Add/Remove Launcher pages built in

    v3 - allows me to think I don't need bigger glasses yet.

    I like v5 the best. If you have the patience, you can try them all and you can decide for yourself which one you like better. You can take a screenshot with ctrl+sym+p. Take a screenshot of your launcher page and flip between them.

    After going through them all I think Im gonna stick with version 5 for the moment. It seems to flow better moving from page to page.
    Version 3 was more popular bu to me it had more lag and I don't need anymore of that.

    had v 3, then 5, currently on 3, added the no arrows and fade patch (don't like everything rolled into 1 patch like 4 is), think I may switch back to 5 here shortly though.

    I don't understand the purpose of the line, I don't need to drink to have fun. Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

    Let's all give thanks to the app that started it all.

    I've tried the other ones, but I like v2, with the smaller icons. The large icons make me feel like I'm running windows on a low resolution with the humongoid icons taking up half the screen. Smaller icons make it feel like I have more screen space also, plus it looks cleaner to me. To each their own though. That's there there's multiple versions..

    Oh, and the Glass Effect Launcher Patch makes it look sexy also.
