Post [Q] From CM 10.2 to CM 11 and similar 4.4.2: Flash or Not Flash ?

Hello to all!
I wanted opinions on current KitKat ROM 4.4.2.
Now I mount the latest CM nightly 10.2 kernel with Prime, and I must say I find myself pretty well.
I would like to know the current bugs present on the various ROM 4.4.2 and whether it is worth substantially flashing the new ROM or maybe wait some time for you to solve various problems.

For those who have already flashed KitKat could tell me if the smartphone is generally more 'fast and responsive? Consumes less ram? In short, someone who can give me a little review and opinions.

Thank you very much!
A company can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on firewalls, intrusion detection systems and encryption and other security technologies, but if an attacker can call one trusted person within the company, and that person complies, and if the attacker gets in, then all that money spent on technology is essentially wasted.

I am very satisfied with beanstalk 4.4.2 with iodak 9.5 and ART envoirment. In regular use it is faster and more responsive than previous 4.3.1 CarbonROM where i came from. Battery is also more superior compared to the 4.3.1 ROM. I have more free RAM also typically 250-400MB though i dont think its important to have much free RAM. But im having few bugs: double press power button to wake from deepsleep, video recording won't work, camera with flash still buggy and sdcard mount problem which can be solved easily. After all I can still recommend KitKat.

Don't know if you mind benchmarks but i got 4326 on cm10.2 and stock kernel and
6517 on this ROM ,iodak 9.5 and ART with exact same settings. interactive, noop 1,5ghz 416mhz gpu
Though stock kernel can run quadcore only at 1,4ghz

Dont mind my english.
