I am a heavy gamer and performancive device addict..
Kitkat dont have any fancy samsung stuffs bro..bt its all system files are of kitkat so the gaming performance is alot increased.. All game bugs are almost fix which were in 4.2.2......there is work around for every thing..
I mean..think about it..
I never use smart stay...
I nor did use much of live wallpapers as they were battery consuming..the lock screen was fancy but still lets face truth that its just meant for security/unlocking screen :P...u will have to compromise with single sim and non fancy apps :P..
But it does worth a try..i mean why not :P ... Give it a shot and i am sure u will find something unique about it...
It got its own features..so ya...its ur wish..there are also downsides of it .....u can check respective threads and know more..
Hope i helped

Ok bro, I installed selinux cmw recovery... downloaded CM11... I noticed CM is about 200mb comparing to 1 GB stock 4.2.2. Does that mean I will get more free space on internal sdcard? (out of 4GB I mean)...as others suggested, I need to do full wipe/reset factory and manually format system? and if update wasnt successful I can go back to stock via Odin right?

You will get a little more space than stock ROMs. And you can go back to stock via ODIN
