another alternative to choose from is always welcomed, having Nexus doesnt mean you are bind with just the android launcher, right?

It's the principle of having the option to. I'm curious to try it, but my Nexus 4 seems to be out of the loop.

Judging from the comments I see that a lot of you have not used Facebook Home yet. IT' S HORRIBLE. If you enjoy your Android experience at all, you will not install this. Tried installing this on my HTC One a few weeks ago and myself and all of my friends were horrified with a completely Facebook ridden launcher that took over the whole phone. Now, unless you're a teenage girl that is insanely obsessed with Facebook, then you will hate this. Not to mention it was laggy, when nothing else on the HTC One is laggy. Even on a custom performance rom.

A million(+) downloads sounds nice and all, but... it'd be interesting to know the uninstall numbers too.
I know a few people that installed it just to try it out and within a few days all of them had uninstalled it; back their Nova, Go, APEX, & vanilla, etc. launchers.

Facebook Home is just a launcher that sits on your screen, it's nothing beyond that.
