Question [Q] Original android or regular roms?

Im coming from the s3 . im just getting this phone now and wanted to see what roms to flash. whats the difference on original android and regular android roms? because on the s3 regular android roms were TW(TouchWiz) based and Original roms were Asop or Aokp based roms. So since this is a pure android phone why the two different categories?

So far i'm happy with stock rom/kernel + root/twrp + Xposed modules.
I feel it's a tad too early for custom rom/kernel if you aim at rock solid stability.


Regards,
Daniel

Because Nexus 5 stock is still very different from AOSP.

Also, non-original also includes unofficial cm etc.

Please would you mind using search before posting? Asked and answered numerous times in the nexus 5 forum already
