If you're adventurous (and rooted with ClockworkMod, etc) you can also update to 6.0.1 with OMNI ROM or Full Advance (also based on OMNI). I just did this couple of days ago (from SlimKAT 4.4).
Slower, way slower, of course than 4.4. But fully working 6.0.1 if you need one. Just remember to install the pico (smallest) version of Open GAPPS (system partition is too small for larger packages).

This is my first Samsung and also my first Android phone after 8 years of Symbian Nokias. I bought it on 25/8/2010 when almost no one had Android. It worked flawlessly for almost 3 years when it just died. To this day I still remember every DarkyROM I've flashed onto it. Those were the days!!
