For those of you wishing to try an alternative ICS based launcher, take a look at XDA Senior member kevin@TeslaCoil‘s latest offering.
Nova Launcher is a launcher replacement based on the stock ICS Launcher and hence will only run on phones already running ICS.
Nova Launcher can install alongside the stock launcher and should work on any ICS ROM. However, in order for the widgets-in-drawer feature to work it must be installed as a system app.
