Default What is mean by users won't be able to disable Magazine UX?

Hello, anybody knows what this mean? Not able to user other launchers such as the tsf and SPB?

I take it that it means the stock Touchwiz launcher will require at least one magazine UX home screen, while the others can be standard normal Touchwiz ones.

As an assumption, I think It should not affect installation of other launchers.

It means I'll slap a custom ROM in it as soon as one becomes available.

I can confirm this is correct. You must have at least one Magazine home screen.....
I have not found a way to remove it.

Any disadvantage of having it? I am running tsf on my Galaxy Note 2. It is very nice.

Magazine UI was something that I wanted to have but the lack of customization of the other components of the stock launcher were too much for me to bear. I ended up installing nova launcher within 20 minutes of trying to customize stock and haven't looked back. I just can't stand the large margins and gaps on the home screen (not talking the tiled pages but rather the standard ones) and the inability to resize widgets freely or overlap them.

I agree - also installed Nova launcher to get rid of magazine UI. It didn't bring much to the table for me. You can definitely replace the launcher.
