I will definitely install exposed, and that's a great solution. (Doh). The issue with exposed is that it requires root. It is a good reason alone to root (but there are other good reasons as well).

People can correct me if I'm wrong, but when you are rooted the ability to deny apps root requests isn't that a security plus.

I've got multi window running with xposed on my moto g. The screen size can't make the most of it but you can change the window sizes, swap them about etc

Not yet, it's unofficial and not yet merged. I've been including it in the test builds but it won't be in nightlies.

(Why? Try using G+ when the device is in landscape... Or just do a portrait/landscape transition. Those are the two main issues that have prevented merging.)

There is sense.

I use multi window like hell on my note 3.

I won't even say once or twice a day.

I can say I use it most of the day because I use WhatsApp a lot.

So I continuously have whats app & RSS reader or the browser or youtube open at the same time.

I watch youtube while chatting. I cannot imagine having to leave youtube, go to whats app, write a reply, go back to youtuve, wait for buffering, watch 5 seconds, then go back to whats app, then back to YouTube, buffering.

So, just stick with your note 3 and leave us here playing with our device calmly.
We not really care about daily usage. We just play the device software.
When we getting boring with a rom, we change it to other rom. and that's it.
That is how the flasher live everyday. Never stick to one kind of features. lol
