    Something simple perhaps, that I don’t seem to be finding any online info about:

    Right after install, we are prompted to “Select Home”, where the selections are “EasyHome”, “Home”, or “Home & app drawer”

    At first, I kept the use-as-default box unchecked to make it easy to try the options a bit. (I’m still not clear what “EasyHome” is supposed to be…. except simpler.)

    HERE’s the big takeaway, for me: if you select “Home & app drawer”,
    then you GET BACK the icon setup, from your desktop BEFORE the update to 8.0.
