Root the Tab Pro 10.1?

I've had my Tab Pro for a couple of weeks now, and I've come to the conclusion that the Magazine UX is pretty useless (for me at least).
Of all the samsung apps that come included, I think the keyboard is the only one that's worth it.
So, I was wondering what peoples thoughts on rooting the tablet were?
I just hate that I can't delete most of the samsung apps I don't want, and that touchwiz is slowing me down...

Should I do it?
Just trying to get some feedback from forum members on it.
I haven't rooted anything before, but I am sure its not too bad to navigate through.
Any experiences or tips to share?

Thanks in advance guys.

Reading the XDA TabPro forum it seems that people that do not like the Magazine UI do some or all of the following:
- Install Nova Launcher and use it
- Root and use Titanium Backup to freeze the Samsung apps they don't like (safe route)
- Root and manually remove the apps considered bloat with TiBu or a file manager that is give /system RW permissions
- Root and install CM11 ROM (currently only for TabPro 8.4)

Also the CM and TWRP recovery(s) are only working with the TabPro 8.4 but all indications are its only a matter of time before the whole TabPro series is supported.
