Seems like many of these launchers are meant for phones. How do I return to the default OS launcher once I've tried a bunch?

Since I haven't used Android as my primary OS since 2.2, this might have changed but:
Go to settings>Applications>Manage apps>[Your current launcher]
Clear the defaults for your current launcher and press the home key. It'll ask you what program to use for that action. Set the stock launcher (most probably it's just called "Launcher") to always be used as default for this task and there you go.

Edit: AJerman beat me to it.

Yep that worked. I was trying go launcher hd and it kept changing to another launcher so i figured i would go back to the default jellybean one for stability.

You can use "Home Manager" to swap between / make default different launchers too

Launcher7 showed a lot of promise but was really poorly implemented and seems to have been dropped.

This. It's a real pain to get live tiles with that, plus I would like if it included some kind of icon pack for the app drawer.

Nope, just moving onto Launcher8 from what I hear.

I'm currently using this ROM for my Galaxy S, branched from the cyanogenmod code with their customised Trebuchet launcher. Seems good enough for me. I own a license for ADW launcher EX but updates seem to be very sporadic so I stopped using it.

Using Nova Launcher free.

Might buy the Nova Launcher Prime in the future if I'm into Gestures.
