Why does my HTC Desire HD desktop keep having to load?

Since getting Sense 3.0 on my HTC Desire HD, my desktop occasionally has to load. Sometimes takes up to a minute! Say I've just come out of Facebook for example.

I'd suggest getting rid of everything HTC put on the phone software wise by running a custom AOSP ROM.

Your phone will be noticeably faster at pretty much everything.

That is because Sense 3 is a giant resource hog. The HTC Desire HD doesn't have quite enough juice to run heavy apps AND that heavy Sense UI.
It's like installing Vista on a laptop with 512mb RAM and a crappy cpu. Then load iTunes, then quickly go to your desktop and see how long it takes to render your 50 shortcuts and the oh so classy Vista sidebar.. Make yourself a big cup of tea first ;)

If you run chunky apps on the Desire HD, disable Sense. Use Launcher Pro and Beautiful Widgets instead...
