    As you know, stock ICS will not rotate home screens. Not a big deal as the Motos I formerly used had this capability.

    I'm looking for a rather basic launcher which allows the auto-rotate (4 position if possible) of the home menus/screen.

    What can ya'll (southern term) recommend?

    The same thing bugged me. I would recommend the Nova launcher. I don't have the link, but if you look through this Nexus help forum, I think you will see a thread on it. You can't download it from the market. This launcher was specially designed for ICS as opposed to the one described in the post before this one, which just gives your screens the look of ICS.

    I have tried ADW launcher this after and it's ok. I don't like how it handles folders and it is seemingly slow in rotating the home screens. I would like to hear what advantages there are to Nova. Does it handle folders like ICS default launcher?

    My experience is that is much faster than the standard launcher for rotating screens. You can make and add to folders just like in ICS, even gives you the option of editing or removing an app if you "long click" on it. I am really happy with it. The guys who designed it really knew what they were doing.
