Losing the Will to Customize?

Gingerbread on my dad's Samsung Galaxy S is horrible, and installing a launcher was a breathe of fresh air. It was a work phone so I couldn't root. On my family's HP touchpad, I installed ICS and I played around with it a lot.

However, I have no desire to do anything on my Nexus 7 except for the standard stuff...not even a launcher. Is it just me or has Android become polished enough for the average user? Does anyone else feel this way?
