    I've decided to take the plunge and install CM13 and I love it so far! However, there's something I can't really get used to... the interface! I *think* it uses google now launcher. Is there anyway to switch it back to the stock version of lollipop? I really liked the feel of it on the stock rom. If I can't switch it back then I'll be okay, I just prefer the original over the google now launcher. Thanks Tempers!~

    I forgot
    Just a note, the Google Now launcher is the stock launcher for Android, and it has been for a while now.

    If you mean the stock ROM for your specific phone, it'd be helpful to know which phone you have. I see two screenshots, one for a Nexus 4 and one for the Galaxy S5, so I can't tell which one you use. If you want a Touchwiz-style launcher, there's S Launcher which mimics the Touchwiz design. The Nexus 4 used Google Now AFAIK, so that'd be considered "Stock" for that, too.

    If you want an older AOSP launcher, there's simply AOSP Launcher.

    My personal favorite launcher is the Nova launcher, so I would recommend that over the Google Now launcher

    I reccomend Nova Launcher over literally any of the others.
    It is single-handedly the best launcher out there.
    I like to heavily customize my software, and Nova was great for that.

    The default launcher for Cyanogenmod 13 is Trebuchet. The thing is about as vanilla as you get, in terms of basic appearance. But it has a good bunch of nifty features as well. Go to Settings >> Home (under the Personal section) and select which launcher you want to use by default.
