Needless to say I will be flashing the first AOSP that is released lol.

This TouchWiz feels like a custom ROM...it flows like better, and so far, I don't see any reason to install a custom ROM. I hate putting up with random reboots, force close, and overheating. After I rooted and got rid of the T-Mobile bloat, this thing feels like a road runner.
Any stock ROM before the Note 3 was so laggy for me with TW. I always had to change launchers at the least. I thought I would have to do that with the N3, but as soon as I turned it on the thing was so buttery smooth I fell in love with TW. I really can't believe it's so smooth. Not only the launcher, but everywhere. Well I guess the specs of this beast help a little. LOL I'm a true fan of this phone as it is out of the box. I rooted already, but only to install some apps that require it. I don't see a need for a custom ROM at all. 4.3, TW, and Samsung really created a masterpiece with the Note 3.
