I know some of this has been covered before but some hasn't just wanted to put my 2cents in.
I have the 800mhz patch and faster animation cards patch and loving it. I opted to go with the no animation one. Works great for me. Like I had it in xp I nnever liked the animation when opening and closing programs or when it came to the dropdown menu.
speaking of which has anyone noticed the drop menu system reminds me a lot of the BeOS which palm bought and then didn't support it. Man I miss that OS. I bet it would be pretty easy doing a beOS theme but I have no idea how to do it myself.
But anyways I just found it kinda cool. I am loving the pre+ and all of it's features and customizations.
