Your phone does not need to be rooted. All modern Android phones have 7 home screens that is built into the operating system. Sense is the name of HTC's skin that over-laid on top of the Android operating system. It is simply further and additional customization that HTC does to the OS that provides additional features, looks, feel, etc. Most manufacturers do this (HTC=Sense, Motorola=Blur, Samsung=Touch Whiz, etc.). Most of us would agree in here that Sense is the best skin. One example that no other Android phone even the Galaxy Nexus has: the latest Sense version gives you this carousel of the home screens and you can actually reach the end of home screen (either left or right), and keep scrolling to get to the other side; so to speak. So say you scrolled left and reached the last home screen. You could keep scrolling left and it would take you to the screens that are the ones you would see if you had scrolled right.
