Default Are We Samsungoholic???

Why is it so That there are so many roms based on touchwiz and not any other ui like ios7 or Huawei Or HTC
Why cant we open up And think of other ui's and not Samsung
Because I am feeling bored of using Samsung's ui

*DedS 4.4 Kernel
*DedS 4.2.2 Stock Kernel

No one likes the Samsung's Touchwiz, but there is no need to make special ROMs for each UI. All you need is a base ROM and customize it the way you like it using Xposed and a custom ported or third-party launchers.
People used to make so many ROMs because they would be themed differently, with different features added here and there but that's pointless now since almost everything can be altered and changed on your own in the stock based ROMs.

All AOSP/CM based ROMs support themes that cover framework, systemUI, player, icons everything into Huawei, HTC and several other custom UIs. Features differ in AOSP ROMs and therefore there are several ones already available and constantly improved.

Asking devs to provide themed ROMs at this point is like saying I'm too lazy to do it on my own so please do it for me, but of course, that's just my personal opinion.
