Launchpad in combination with the Magic Trackpad it's pretty convenient. When purely talking about esthetics I have to agree, it does look a bit strange on a 27-inch iMac (see pic).
Well it's marginally better than the start screen but not by much. Am I the only person that thinks trays of oversized icons in a launcher app looks out of place on modern PCs with large, high resolution monitors?

32 x 32 pixel icons are just ridiculously small on my iMac, 64 x 64 pixels is pretty much the sweet spot. 48 x 48 pixels used to be fine on my 24-inch iMac since it had a lower DPI. The last time I used 32 x 32 pixel icons must have been back in the Mac OS 9 / Windows 98 days.
That wouldn't really work for me either. Personally I feel 32x32 hits the sweet spot for icon size with the current resolution and density of computer screens. On a 4k screen they would be too small, but I feel a setup like that just wastes screen space.
