Default [Q] Other Android OS?

Hello again all, since this is my first time owning a Nexus device, I was wondering if it was possible to have another version of android on it? i.e. Sense, touchwiz, Optimus OS, etc. Not that I have a problem with AOSP, I was just curious cause too much AOSP gets boring eventually. I'm not talking about themes either, like actual OS.

While on the subject of this, completely seperate question, will Ubuntu OS ever be available for the N5? I never tried it but it looks really cool.
Device: Samsung Galaxy S3 Nexus 7 (2013)
ROM: Stock 4.3 MK3 Stock 4.4.2
Carrier: Sprint

Kyocera Oystr → Kyocera Marbl → Motorola i880 -> HTC EVO Shift → HTC EVO 4G → HTC EVO 3D → Motorola Photon → Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch → HTC One S → HTC Hero → Samsung Intercept → LG Nexus 5 → Apple iPhone 5c → Samsung Galaxy S4 → HTC One → iPhone 5 → Samsung Galaxy S3

Its possible to get these oem skinned roms but it needs to be ported by people who have the skill/time/patience to do so.

And I would assume that Ubuntu mobile OS will eventually come to the n5.
