I'm running Skynote 8.1 right now and I love it.

Nova launcher and the Perseus kernel, it's great.

I've been eyeing some of the AOKP and CM nightlies lately. What did you notice first/appreciate the most when you switched away from a TW based ROM?

Of course, I've read through all the threads for features and changelogs, but I wanted to get some quick first-hand opinions.

I'm not asking the overly-posted 'which ROM is best??!??!?!??!??!?' question, so don't flame me lol.

Honestly you should just try it. I did it myself also. Shouldn't keep asking this question as you can Google aosp vs touchwiz. So you might just get flamed. We shouldn't be giving you reasons anyways lol. Man up and back up and try it.

You won't know until you test it for yourself. I did and I love it ever since. Never going back to stock ROM ever. Loving 4.2.2 with the Bluetooth fixed.

If I was on another phone besides the Note 2 I would be using an AOSP Rom.
I bought the Note 2 b/c of its unique features. Mainly the spen and the multi-view app feature. Two things you sort of loose by going AOSP. Sure there are 3rd party stylus apps you can get, but the TW stylus apps are much better.
I tried various 4.2.X Roms and always kept going back to Skynote. I always felt like I was actually missing features when going to 4.2.1 or 4.2.2. Skynote with Nova Launcher gives me everything I want.

I fully agree. Specifically the multi-view. If multiview was working on AOSP i'd make the switch!

Worth checking out AOKP 4.2.2! I have never had the urge to jump ship on stock however I wanted to see what the latest AOKP was all about and it is awesome! I always keep an updated nandroid of stock as well if I miss my SPen too much

Is the Spen functional with AOKP/AOSP/CM roms ?

I am on the fence as well, I was always on AOKP (Rootbox) with my old i9100. It was great!
