Google’s stock Android often gets a free ride from Android geeks who flock to Nexus and Google Play Edition devices, avoiding devices running Samsung’s TouchWiz, HTC’s Sense, and other manufacturer skins. But stock Android isn’t perfect.

You can download floating apps from Google Play (like a floating calculator, floating browser, floating sticky notes, etc) and you don't need to root or anything, they work on stock Android.
It is a little annoying because you have to launch the floating app first, but you could also download something like SwipePad to launch the floating apps from anywhere.

I'm one of the "few" that like using both Samsung TouchWiz and HTC Sense. I've had my share of custom ROMs and I've use CM, but I keep going back to the TouchWiz and Sense. I find myself going back to the ROM loaded on the phone. I do like rooting and freezing and/or deleting the bloatware, but the skins themselves I don't have a problem with.

Another thing stock Android doesn't have: a good file manager, Even if you don't allow root access (you probably shouldn't, for the sake of regular users), you should at least provide a way for us to rename, delete and copy-paste files on our SD card without connecting the phone to our PC or downloading another app.
