Question Does Jelly Bean 4.1 Still Give You Lag With GO Launcher EX?

With the new Android Jelly Bean 4.1 Operating System, how are people finding it works with GO Launcher EX?
Iím seeing the same lag as I did before, with the 4.0 Operating System (Ice Cream Sandwich).

What does everyone else find?

Used Go very briefly when I first got my Nexus (ICS). Found it really didn't add anything and wasn't any faster.
Not sure if it's optimized for ICS/JB, but I find Nova to make it even more buttery smooth than it already is.

I have never used Nova. Is there an iPhone theme for it?

I also use Nova (Prime). My tab is on ICS.
I found Nova to be very fast and smooth.
Last night I got an update available notice for it, and it's even faster now than it was before.
Runs like a rocket.
Highly recommended.

ETA: I tried GO, and most of the others, but kept coming back to Nova.
Don't know if there's an iPhone theme for it.
There are free themes available for Nova and the others.
I use one called "Gloss Blue". It puts the original app icon on a blue background. Gives a nice
neat uniform look to the icons. He has some other colors also.
Search the Play Store for something like "GO Launcher themes", or whatever launcher you're
interested it.
Some themes work with multiple launchers.

Not sure. Don't think there are any themes for Nova (could be completely wrong). I really just like the pure stock experience with a handful of tweaks.
