I was one of them. Switched to Nova about a year ago...not sure if Go Launcher has improved since then but I do like Nova

Same boat, used to be crazy about everything Go Launcher/Go Locker had to offer, switched to Nova and couldn't be happier (:

Same here :) Only thing I sometimes miss, are those nifty scroll effects in prime. But nova seems faster/smaller. And it irrated a lot you couldnt change icons manually in the drawer of Go Launcher.

Nova this, nova that. I'm yet to see how it's better than Apex or Holo launchers. If anything, I prefer Holo to them all mainly because Go and Next are memory hog.

I like Nova and Apex. GEL is nice, but still prefer the first two. Haven't used Holo.

I hear Apex is good, haven't seen Holo yet, but Nova is def good for a launcher we shouldn't brush it off to the side.

I think Go Launcher is the best home replacement on Android, but Nova may take its place on my phone. Go is getting a little too annoying with all the constant reminders to update, and try new apps. I can understand them wanting us to try thier new stuff but give us a freakin break.

I like Nova better than APEX but only because I started using Nova after APEX and got used to it. I tried to go back to APEX but the icon spacing is different and I would have to rejigger my wallpaper (shelves) to make it look right. The only thing I miss in APEX is the ability to lock the icons on the home screen from the homescreen menu instead of going into Nova settings...but that's minor so I just hinted to Nova to include that feature.
