Well, hoping that now that Verizon has begun to update the Note 3 that we may be next. I'm still expecting a multi-week wait, however. My money is on late June. And then I'll never have to worry about this again for the S3, because I think this is the end of the line for it!

here for the previous firmware - select your device in the drop-down list in the upper left corner and be sure to get the 4.3 version.
You'll also need to download a tool called Odin (just Google it - look for v3.07; use one of the sources from XDA). You can find instructions on how to use Odin in any of the rooting sub-forums.

That's interesting. I took it and battery life is still ok. But the lagginess is awful. Camera takes 20 seconds to load, Swype frequently doesn't register the first "keystroke". Was just talking to a co-worker who mans our IT helpdesk. He says Samsung reps he's talked to are still not convinced Verizon will roll out KitKat to the S3 due to performance issues. I wonder if this otherwise oddball roaming update might not have been a field test of something related to performance to see how the phones would react in the wild to KK.

It's coming...remember that both Samsung and Verizon have to add their bloat to KitKat before we see it. That takes time to do, and more time to get all that bloat working at once.
So hang in their, I firmly believe that it's just a matter of months for KitKat to be bloated enough for us customers.

This is very good news for the S3!

I don't think this will be one of those breathless, ranting threads. I'm interested in getting KitKat, mainly to see the NFC functions and Google Wallet in action. But I'm not sitting here hitting F5 every 30 seconds to see if someone has spotted a leak in Kuala Lampur that might signify an impending release. However, I do post here when I see something that suggests we may be getting closer. The Note 2 rollout from Verizon yesterday was such an event in my estimation (though SamuriHL tells me he thinks that's irrelevant, just to present the other side of the argument!).
Bottom line: I'm getting a full night's sleep every night!
