three questions about campaign settings

This is kind of three questions in one. First off, do we have any Greyhawk fans around here? If we do, do you have any recommendations for resources, books to read, supplements, etc.? I spent the first half the last few years largely unaware of Greyhawk's existence, and the latter half thinking that it was a poorly supported generic world of little to no importance created back in the 70s. I have recently begun revising this opinion. While Greyhawk is apparently something of a generic world (and always has been, by some accounts), I have recently been noticing that there is rather more to it than just that. Anyone have any good Greyhawk memories, or advice on where to find Greyhawk lore?

Second, what campaign settings/worlds do you guys use?

Third, for those who do homebrew worlds a lot, do you have a method for creating it, or is it just a hodgepodge free for all of whatever comes to your mind and whatever works for the campaign? I have been dabbling in world creation lately -- in the words of a DM I know, it's a delusion every DM convinces himself that he's capable of sooner or later, and I've convinced myself of it sooner -- and I guess I'd like to hear some of what other people have done.
