To the excitement of many, Google has finally made the Google Now Launcher available for all Android devices running Android 4.1 or later.

The GNL is what Google thinks your Android device should look like, in a basic sense. A dedicated Google Now homescreen pane, a permanent Google Search shortcut at the top of every screen, and a very bare-bones app drawer. It's simple, fast, and Google-y. What's interesting is that, despite some degree of love for the GNL in the wider Android community, it's really not an enthusiast's launcher at all. You can't configure it in any real sense, and aside from customizing your Google Now experience, app shortcuts, widgets, and wallpaper, the GNL is really quite rigid in terms of what you can do with it. It's basically the polar opposite of something like Nova Launcher.

GNL is much more of the Google fan's launcher - not the Android enthusiast's, necessarily. Which leads us to today's poll: what camp are you in? Are you using (or have you been using if you have a Nexus / GPE / ROMed device) the Google Now Launcher? Cast your votes.

Are you currently using the Google Experience Launcher now that it's available for all 4.1+ devices?
