I will. I'm about to download the beta version right now, but it seems that will be closed off soon and he'll only have his paid version up afterwards. That seems to be the only downside right now.
And I can't sing enough praises of Nova Launcher Prime. After I started using it, I was annoyed to learn it was one of the $0.25 apps on sale in Sept (a month before I got ICS which would have made it compatible for my device), so I didn't feel like buying it. However, it's awesome. I don't like buying apps but $4 for something I use every time I turn my phone on is definitely worth it. If you're only going to pay for one app, this is one to consider (a long with SwiftKey X and Titanium Backup if you root).
I haven't tried Prime yet, but I've been a big fan of Go Launcher EX. It gives me a lot of options, and allows me to be as minimalist as possible. I agree about TB being a must have and worth every penny.

Oh and Exynos 5 Octa benchmarks...
