My only reaction was WTF(?).
It's like taking a luxurious Mercedes S500, and stripped it down for the drag strips.
No S-Pen functionality. Camera sucks balls. No Wifi Calling. No Smart Stay or anything.
On note 2 I always stuck with touchwiz (tweaked ROM) because I always felt like I was missing features on aosp/cm based ROMs. Temasek ROM has finally got me to switch to a cm based ROM... And stay there.
With just a few apps, you can (mostly) add back spen functionality. When I pull my pen out it makes a noise and turns the screen on, if the screen is already on it will pop up a window so I can choose a notepad app (papyrus) or to take/edit a screenshot. The other thing I missed that cm based ROMs didn't have were notifications on the lockscreen. Temaseks ROM has lockscreen notifications, and I actually like those better than the tw ones. Also halo is really cool.
The biggest reason I stuck with touchwiz though was battery life. Again, temasek has solved that. I am getting good battery life, and some people are posting screenshots of over 24 hours off charger and 11 hours on screen time... I haven't got that yet, but my battery life is pretty good.
Just remember, you don't have to agree with other people and join a camp... Just use what you like.
