Question [Q] The most RAM saving ROM

Greetings,

I've been around for some time, lurking mostly. And installing a ROM with ICS or JB on my Galaxy W was a wonderful way to innovate. It feels like I'm using a brand new phone, which is awesome.

I have tried Cyanogen mod and Paranoid Android and even the PAC roms. But the issue I run while using them is that my ram seems to be full most of the time, and it's filled with system apps more than my own apps. Which limits the phone seriously. I am almost unable to use Swiftkey for typing online or even messages, since it lags too much the phone.

I plan on keeping a couple of apps like a battery saver, Aviate launcher and occasionally a traffic monitor app like 3g Watchdog.I've been thinking about going back to Gingerbread versions, although new ones seem more enticing with features/apps like Google now.

I'm breaking my question in two parts:

1 - Can a more advanced android version like JB (or maybe KK) help make the system faster and the ram management more efficient? Or should I stick with a rom similar to stock?

2 - What roms do you recommend? Which Kernel? Or should I just face the fact my phone won't be able to comply with my current needs and I should ask Santa for an iPhone?

thanks

Thank you, I'll give it a try on the stable version.

For future reference, and to save the trouble for other people who may come here and need to search the thread:

Thank you very much.

PS: in the mean time I'm open to more suggestions, just in case.

The rom crashes the settings applet everytime I try to change language to Portuguese.

Can't add widgets with aviate launcher (settings crashes)

otherwise seems alright.
