All these ROMs are going to be great- once CM gets all the bugs worked out for them.
Sorry but you are very ignorant to the way Open Source and the way AOSP works on the backend. This fanboy and disrespectful statement displays that on many levels.
Most work in all ROM's including CM, AOKP whatever you name it, share mostly the same code. That codebase is AOSP (Android Open Source Project).. Beyond that is fixes put in place by the vendors which developers then pick from their gerrit and git repos.. This last thing happens to be what CM is very very good at. So with many of the needed vendor fixes already in CM it is much easier to start from that as a baseline. Especially when you are try to get a new phone working.
Beyond the original codebase and the vendor fixes are patches and fixes put in place by the community. This is not meant as disrespect to CM, that project has a lot of very talented developers and are an asset to the community. But many of the fixes you are implying to are found fixed then submitted to CM's gerrit by non CM developers.
While many of the AOSP ROM's released might not have the impact that CM does they defiantly provide fixes that make their way to your phone.
You know that guy who made Liberty and Gummy but is just lazy now :P
