CyanogenMod’s ROMs are custom ROMs based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and come without any gloatware, bloatware that the carriers or manufacturers often add to the smart phones before shipping it. It also removes the default custom UI like Sense for HTC which is often criticised
Further the CyanogenMod ROMs always give you, the user a way to incorporate additional tweaks and tools to improve performance and battery life. It also grants you root access which mean you can always try out new things like install, modify and tweak system-level apps and code in the Android operating system.
CM 10.1 is based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, whereas CM 10 was based on Android 4.1. CyanogenMod 9 is based on Android v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and while many of the ports for unsupported devices have some issues, the team counts the ROM stable enough and said that they will be maintaining the ROM and fixing any major issues that come up.
