Awesome, will give it a go. Much appreciated, Sid. ADW is excellent but want to try the others to see which one has the smallest memory footprint.
Btw, how about some alternatives for the built-in/HTC sense keyboards? Swiftkey X is a great choice with very good word prediction. Swype beta is also a good one and now works great with the Tbolt.

Doh! Good catch. I use Flex T9 myself since I like to trace, but it's worth mentioning Swiftkey X and Swype. There are a couple of others as well (GO Keyboard, for example).

I also have a suspicion that you could backup FM Radio in Titanium Backup on a Sense ROM and restore it later. I haven't tried either option, so I wasn't going to offer that advice in the OP. If you can confirm it works for me, I'll add it to the list in the original post.
Yes, I am actually using it. I'm not on a tiered data plan (yet!?), but I would think that anyone who is would be using the FM-Radio. You're probably right about restoring the HTC FM-Radio to a Sense ROM via TB backup, and I wish I had thought to try that during my hour-long flirtation with BAMF Remix. Would not have been sufficient inducement to stick with a Sense ROM, though.
Keyboard: SmartKeyboard gets my recommendation and, as an urban texting pedestrian, I can tell you that I'm picky about my touchscreen keyboard. : )
I also like Handcent for messaging, have used this since my I had my Moto Droid
For Calendar I like CalendarPad but now that I'm reading about Jorte I may be trying that.
I also like Color Note for notes, there's the option for a check list or just text, and you can set reminders, which I love!
I like doubletwist for music, I've been using the player a lot in the last few weeks and really like it and you can d/l (paid) airsync.
All this other stuff is way over my head LOL
Original post updated with some of the suggestions:
Agile Lock Free (Sense 3.0 lockscreen)
Spirit FM Radio
Added a keyboard section
UPDATE: I also just added three Camera apps to the list:
Camera 360 Free (recommended)
Keep the suggestions coming and I'll make sure they get included!

Gotta add UberMusic into the list for music players. I've been using it since beta and now it's on the market... For 3 dollas (yea I know but it's worth it). It's from Federico, the same homie who made Launcher Pro.
It's simple (zune style) , has about 6 widget size options, and you can even download THEMES for this!

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you're still amongst those stars.
id add color notes which is free and awesome also some sort of calculator cause sometimes you just need one!
Sid, I want to thank you for starting this post. Your guide (or article) provides the perfect roadmap to getting started on using ASOP ROMs. Having now used a couple of ASOP ROMs (thanks also to the new Boot Manager app which has streamlined this process) and using some of your suggestions, I can truly understand and appreciate the differences in the ROMs. Thanks again for sharing some of your knowledge and helping people like me gain the confidence to move forward using these types of ROMs.
Tallica, Sele, Capt D, Jim M, I think this post should be a sticky and/or be posted as a guide.
Thank you for sending me the link to this thread, sidsixseven. Definately got a lot of good leads on this!
