Yes that's true and we're eagerly waiting. Hope the beta will leak like on N7000

I've had MIUI on my last two devices over the last 3 years (HTC Desire and SGS2) and absolutely loved it....

But, I'm not sure about getting it on the note 2. I don't think I could live without the pen functionality and touchwiz has some nice little touches that I do like (smartstay, for example, is much more useful than I thought). Also not sure I could live without the camera software (although MIUI may keep this in).

For my previous two devices, MIUI was a huge upgrade in terms of UI and functionality, but with the note 2, I think it mightn't give me that much when compared to stock.

Me too, that's why I use the official MIUI Beta (leak) on my N7000, because MIUI decided to use Samsung base and not CyanogenMod anymore. TouchWiz Framework is included and S-Pen features completely working. Even something like "show little pointer 1cm above screen when using s-pen" is possible on the N7000 MIUI, which even the original N7000 doesn't have.
MIUI does the same for the N7100 release: Samsung base, TouchWiz integrated, SPen fully supported.

MIUI included the Samsung camera app in N7000 Beta, I guess the same happens on the N7100 release. You can still flash the Android 4.2 Camera besides that.

For all my devices it was a huge upgrade in terms of UI and non-geeky-crippeled-too-black-interface. And just out of the box integration of useful features like Call Recording, Blocking, Firewall, DnD Mode, Guest Mode, Bright design (for sunny days it's better than the AOSP black, and less ugly too), Themes, no tinkering with buggy stuff, only stable stuff integrated.

First thing I was hating when I used my N7100 was the ugly TouchWiz, the useless Apps installed, the old fashioned UI concept (create a folder with -> edit screen -> menu -> add folder)... The unofficial N7100 MIUI build from yure was a huge improvement for my N7100 after 1 Week... I would never go back to Samsung stock ROM.

So any news about the beta they are testing @ official MIUI? I mean did it have a lot of bugs/hickups?
I know it's forbidden to ask for ETA's but is there any chance the beta will leak out to the public like with the N7000?
My hands are itching to flash this goodness.
