Touchwiz is the name of the component Samsung adds to every Android device they make, (except Nexus devices). It's a modification of the framework and includes a lot of the extra features that they advertise on TV as well as the launcher that you are use to seeing. If you were to remove touchwiz without applying the proper fixes, it could render your phone very difficult to own.
