You really need to try out a new launcher. I agree that Sense does make that much, well, sense...

It's funny, I've found myself to be not that much of a big widget user, I've got all the stuff I want on my home screen and two blank pages on either side . But, another nice feature of Go Launcher is if you want 50 launcher pages, you can have them!
Since this is a webOS forum, I agree the way webOS handles multitasking is by far the most intuitive, I think just because you swipe back and forth between open cards and you can easily "see" what is being multitasked. But to be honest, I have not found that Adroid multitasks that differently (obviously without the cards) but I've yet to lose anything when a call or text comes in while typing an email, etc.
So many people claim that a webOS advantage over Android is that you need task killers on Android. I don't use them, and Google advises not to. They claim that webOS doesn't need them, but they do not really know if a task is running behind the scenes when the card is not there. There are lots of things that run in the background in webOS even without a card present. Just open a terminal window and run "top" and you will see it all. In fact, I would bet most time that people have to restart or do a battery pull its because there is a "task" that is running in the background that will not go away.
They are both great platforms. Some will love one, some will love the other and some will be like myself -- I like both. I just moved from webOS to Android because of the stunt HP pulled and I didn't feel like waiting until "summer" to potentially get a new device (no matter what people have said it is not guaranteed to come to Sprint -- and to those who say it is going to because someone at Sprint said it was, I will remind you that HP said we would get webOS 2.0 on our Pre- too).
I am of the belief that you got to find what works best for you. Android is working pretty good for me right now, but when my next upgrade comes up next February, I will definitely take a look at webOS again.
