Recently switched over to CM, since carbon stopped nighties (since it needs since it can get really buggy) . Pretty happy with it, added Peek from the play store and I'm as happy as a clam.

I'm still on stock ROM not rooted, just art enabled and I have zero stability issues with this phone. Much better than I'm used to with HTC phones in the past all running custom Roms. Trying to decide if I want to risk annoying problems again with a custom rom. I spend hours getting my phone set up after a fresh flash.

but there are so many apps that are not compatible with ART that i am a little skeptical whether i should change to ART or leave it be ...

Currently on the latest CM11 nightly (7/21) and chaos kernel 13.1 stable. Couldn't be happier. Smooth as glass, better battery life than stock and more features built in.

I haven't found any of the apps I've used not working on art. I was skeptical at first and worried about stability but there hasn't been any problems for me.

I've tried a few different kernals and Roms but always seem to come back to stock with xposed. Of what I've tried stock with Franco kernal worked beat for me.
