With rom customizing it turned out to be a highly configurable phone. I then moved onto the new HTC Touch pro and set it up the same way. Although the newer WM 6.1 has the TouchFlo3d GUI, it really wasn't that great, and then only decent when tweeked.
So recently i discovered the PointUI Home2 GUI for WM PPC's. It's awesome! I have typed up some info if you're interested.

This paired with Silence's ROM is an unbeatable combo!
