Default Rom for daily productivity usage

Hello,

I'm using growl v7 at the moment on my galaxy w and it's very smooth (i was really surprised by it), but from time to time, the phone just lags as hell. I'm using the following productivity apps:
- any do
- gmail
- imap account
- outlook app
- swiftkey

I don't have facebook installed and use light browser. I also installed turbo boost.

I don't need the latest version of android, I just want a rom that keeps on running fast with the productivity apps i mentioned. do i have to go back to gingerbread or ics?

I've been using ICS from long time and didn't face any problem about lag.

I installed apps like
-bbm
-swiftkey
-kakao
-facebook
-gmail
-what's app
-tweetcaster
-any.do

And of course with -greenify-

I'm running OneOfAKind v30 and Hurtsky's kernel REV9 and it's simply flying. I don't mind the somewhat dated UI, cuz now the phone doesn't lag and keeps doing what it's supposed to do. Much better than 4.2.2 and 4.3.1 IMO

I would also choose Stock or CM9 - and if you need the camera often, then there is no way around stock, in my eyes.
Unfortunely the Camera in CM9 is barely ok for daily usage, in my opinion.

If the cam is not much needed, CM9 is a major step in terms of smoothness, although the Stock-ROM's overal performance is solid.

If the decision results in CM9, i would recommend to use the vanilla-version - modded editions are rarely maintained or really testet, and you never know if there will come the one bug that causes you trouble in your producitvy apps / missed phone call.

// edit: Ok, sorry, i had not seen that you already made a decision
