Not many people use LauncherPro nowadays, it seems. I do like the ability to set 15 shortcuts on the bottom quicklaunch bar. How does it run on the Galaxy Note, given that Touchwiz is GPU accelerated?

Neither Go launcher nor Launcher pro accept S-memo notes as widget. When you try to send the note as widget, it gets attached to tw anyway.

VTL.Launcher
VTL.launcher is what I've been using on my note. This launcher is based on ADW but optimised for tablets, which will add allot of useful option for use on your note.

Am I the only person having issues with ADW EX and Go Launcher EX?

ADW EX: Layout is tablet, lots of overlapping, menu at the bottom is cut off in portrait mode.
Go Launcher EX: LAG LAG LAG when flipping through homescreens in 5x5.

To be honest, after a while I have noticed the lag, which is quite annoying on Go Launcher. I'm up for trying something else now me thinks...

He said "will have" (ie: future tense). Theres been confirmation that the Note is indeed a device getting ICS... As for when that is, who knows. Samsungs firmware update schedules are always a laugh. I figure by the time ICS rolls around the XDA community would have provided about 40 different custom ROMs based on it anyway.

I just hope that the wacom digitizer drivers and custom behavior related to the stylus won't turn out to be too problematic to put into custom ROMs. it'd be a shame to choose between ICS or pen functionality, or wait for Samsung to release a touchwizified ICS.

If I had to give up my wacom stylus, I would have just stuck with my SGS2.

Answering my own question: Launcher Pro works great. Only slowdown for me is when the app drawer comes up. Setting the app drawer launch animation speed to 10 disables the animation, therefore the lag.
