The only question that comes to mind to answer that is: WHY?

TouchWiz has got to be one of the slowest, worst UIs for Android available. It's actually a good thing that Nexus S doesn't come with it.

Isn't TouchWiz what comes with the Galaxy S?

I use it myself (JPY) and find I really like it. It doesn't seem slow at all.

ADW Launcher, LauncherPRO...
Fully customisable.
There are hundreds of others but those 2 are the most popular.

If you want TouchWiz buy a Galaxy S or Galaxy S II. The Nexus is is for those who want the Vanilla android experience without the bloatware that is TouchWiz.

I'm pretty sure other launchers can be modified to have a similar horizontally scrolling menu. try ADWLauncher: https://market.android.com/details?id=org.adw.launcher
or GoLauncherEx: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gau.go.launcherex&feature=search_result

Yeah ADW Launcher gives you the horizontal scrolling. Plus with gesture control it's a great launcher alternative.

Try changing the fonts on TouchWiz and watch how slow it gets. Nice feature.....but ouch.

I have a Galaxy S and have settled on ADW Launcher Pro with the Sky theme. Perfect.
