Default [Q] Looking for a stock ROM switching back from AOSP, whats similar to Slimbean?

I want to go back to stock from AOSP, I don't have an issue with AOSP but it seems that because there will never be open source drivers from Samsung, that the battery life/graphical smoothness (butter etc) will always be better on stock. Is that true? Are the drivers, battery life and responsiveness always going to be better on stock?

Could someone who knows about stock ROMs recommend a ROM similar in concept to Slimbean/Slimkat (I'm using Slimsaber currently)? I like how it is anti-bloat, I hate bloat.
I just want something simple to be able to get the best battery life with my apps/games.

And why is it so hard to find a stock ROM now that hotfile is dead? It's like no one bothered to use alternate mirrors?? Can't understand that.

Is XXLTA the latest stock ROM version?

The only better aspect of stock ROM is the camera app due to the propriety drivers. But aosp Roms are more smooth. Battery life is nearly equal. I won't recommend a specific ROM, there are many our there that fulfill your needs plus it may turn this thread into best ROM thread and thus it will be closed.
