I like all of you was happy to hear the news. However, with kitkat comes a new way (sounds not good for people who like to move items to removable sd cards) for us to manage our files. Im still a little confused on exactly what this means, but I guess time will tell.

Some people are reporting issues, some say they're OK but there definitely are changes in Kit Kat with respect to how Android handles external SD cards.

KitKat is not the new Jelly Bean, its Android getting refined and close as ever to the original Android motto(or whatever yu wanna call it) clean, fast, more secure, just works on every phone(512mb of ram) to be exact ........point is

4.4 is Android 2.0 (in my opinion) all the features rolled upto one, secure as ever, minimalistic/clean and just what we need from Google to Samsung to keep it intact from going rogue with their "Add-ons" (not to be confused with the "Anti-samsung movement that has being going on, on every android site")
ilove Samsung, am not entitled to one company or brand and am opened to anything that comes along so keep the trolls off from XDA.

Awaiting new locked knox bootloader. yay.

I'd give it at least 2-3 weeks after it comes out to touch it unless you're a developer. Just to avoid any issues like what came up with the 4.3 ota because since we still have nothing but the ota its pretty doubtful anything will be different with this,
