Seems to make a bigger difference on resource hogs like the Sense UI. I tried it running MoDaCo's Desire ROM and it seemed to be faster. I don't notice as much of a difference on Cyanogen ROM's. I am still keeping it installed, even running CM. It hasn't given me any problems and the phone does seem pretty snappy (Although not much better than before, with the Desire exception).

Been using this the day I got my Nexus One. Does it work? I have no idea! I have no reference points to compare it with.

It's small though and certainly isnt causing any problems. Worst case it does nothing, oh well, best case it helps alot. Pretty sure thats a no-lose scenario.

And I guess I'll be the one to start.

Read my signature. 39 apps running and 0 apps running have the same responsiveness. Killing apps does nothing but free unneeded RAM.

Task Killers are needed, just not what some people are using them for. For example, the speedtest.net app has a bug where when you back out of the app, it still uses your gps draining your battery, having a task killer will allow you to close that program without having to reboot your phone.

Lol that's funny because that app is the only reason I use a task killer. It is definitely needed for killing apps with bugs but not for keeping apps out of the RAM for no reason.

A bit misleading....

I thought the video showed someone with 39 apps running comparing to 0 apps running.
