    I am currently not rooted due to taking the OTA update, does anyone know how to shut down the original Sense launcher so I stop getting the red notification on Nova?
    Get launcher switcher, set Nova as your home launcher, and to be sure you don't get any more notifications goto settings>apps >all >HTC Sense>clear defaults.

    I run Nova on my DNA and have never gotten any Sense notifications.

    Holo launcher. I've tried them all and Holo is the one I keep returning to. It's clean, no frills and fast.

    I'm switching the the DNA from my RAZR on Monday. Whenever I get this notification I have to clear defaults, set the third party launcher as the default, then open recent apps and swipe away the stock launcher to clear it from memory.

    You should be able to change the default in nova from the settings menu. See screenshot...Set Default Home.

    I'm trying HOLO launcher HD right now, it seems pretty quick. I'll let everyone know in a few days how it compares to NOVA.

    Edit: I do notice a lag with HOLO when I exit some apps, I'll update as needed.

    I use Nova. I like Sense, but like Nova just a little more because I can have multiple docks.

    I switched back to NOVA, HOLO lagged too much after leaving some of my apps, including AC

    Anyone running Action Launcher Pro? It seems to work well most of the time but crashes occasionally.

    It seems to run pretty well for me, but it lacks the customization options offered by the other launchers. I do like the App icon in the upper left that opens up the app menu, but that one feature isn't enough for me to stick with it. As I mentioned before, ever since ADW EX was updated to work with ICS and above, it's my go-to launcher. The free version doesn't have as many customization options as the Pro version, but it's worth giving a try to see if the pro version is worth it.

    HOWEVER, if I want to do some really creative home screens, like you see on mycolorscreen.com, then I switch to Nova, which I prefer over Apex. I'm interested in checking out TSF Shell and Next Launcher, but 15 minutes isn't enough time to get a feel for a launcher before getting a refund. Anyone have any input on either of these two?

    Next Launcher still needs some help, it will occasionally slow to a crawl, freeze or force close, I don't know much about TSF. I agree with Nova over Apex, seems Nova is a little quicker.

    Next Launcher looks real nice mightyfacundo, but it still needs a good bit of work, and still tends to get laggy.
