Facebook already has full support in the people hub of wp

So it's for people who's lives revolves around FB? So you will be updated with info like if Tim farted or Suzi broke a nail everytime you turn on your phone. Wonderful!
Why don't they improve their FB app first?

this fansboy really pissed me off, every OS is good so please stop spreading hate to other OS

Maybe you guys hope too much.. I think HTC just want to say that they have new phone integrated with Facebook. while the launcher itself will available to download on 12th.

WP is more than capable of handling this but the reason they chose droid only is it's the only OS at present that is easily customisable without having to jailbreak/root/hack your device first!

IMO, this is a bad idea and I don't think it'll make use of the full potential of high-end droids. I mean, a launcher? Seriously?

WP hasn't the power to handle having Facebook launcher. Dual cores don't cut it.

Android is the only OS than can handle quadcores and 8 cores. Facebook knew that as well in selecting the
best OS able to handle this task.
