I've just read the xda portal news about OMNI, and I'm quite confused with people nowadays. I thought that all this time everyone liked cm, but it seems that they've now become the "bad guys" like Samsung and Google just because they've gone corporate and OMNI is the "hero" of the story. I probably don't understand all these because I'm a kid.

SuperSU from Chainfire will come into Omni by default from what I understand, it just hasn't happened yet.
I don't see it so black&white with CM. Yes, they have gone a more commercial route. Are they evil? No, I don't think so. The only disadvantage of a commercial model is that it may lead to unpleasant situations for people who contributed a lot to CM without getting anything in return. But I will personally not be deterred from using CM-source due to the CM Inc. thing.
The strong point of CM(-based) ROMs has always been the huge number of people contributing to CM, making it one of the most stable aftermarket ROMs. If you compare this to e.g. Carbon or PAC, which I have been building myself as well, the much lower number of developers and the lower number of officially supported devices by these ROMs, has often lead to less stable endproducts. I am very curious to see how this develops for CM in future, whether the large number of volunteer-developers will stick with CM or go somewhere else.
