I think the Android developers have a bit of a sweet tooth.

Ver 1.6 (D) was Donut

Ver 2.1 (E) was Eclaire
Ver 2.2 (F) is Froyo - and thanks to mrmurdock34 for helping me find the connection. Wasn't sure how they jumped from Eclaire to Froyo but Frozen Yogurt makes sense.

The next version coming down the pipe is version (G) or Gingerbread.

Finally joined the 21st century last week with an HTC Hero. No 4G in our area for quite a while, so the Hero will do for the year contract I got. It's running Android 2.1. I've rooted it, but haven't done much else with it.

If I put cyanogenmod on it, will I still have the seven "home screens" that are on the stock SenseUI?

I have 5 (default) on my Cyanogenmod 2.2. I haven't looked in to adding more. I know you can change the number of rows and columns for the icons. I know 2.1 gave me the option to add screens.

In simple terms, the Android operating system is open source, so anybody* can get a copy of the code, modify to their liking, and install it on their phone. Cyanogenmod 2.2 is one of those modified versions - of Android version 2.2 - that happens to have a very large user base, so any problems are quickly found and remedied. So since older phones like my Hero may only have Android version 2.1 (or even 1.x) on them, and the carriers aren't planning on officially supporting the newest version, many people install Cyanogenmod 2.2 to have a lot of the features of the latest and greatest phones. Cyanogen also comes with a bunch of tweaks to boost performance and make your phone more customizable over a "stock" Android version.


*Anybody can do it, but not necessarily should do it. The larger the user base, the more stable the release will be.

Right on the money. Great summary.
