Nexus One with Touch Wiz
While the original Nexus One app launcher seems cool enough, people want something more, and Touch Wiz can deliver. In a recent mod by XDA member rolle3k, he makes this possible on all Nexus One without flashing a ROM.

Feel free to include this in your Themes/ROMs!
The device has a great start menu, but you can get the changes from the mod thread.
