If you are brave enough to do it report back here because I am on the fence!! LOL
Just went through with it on my Glide. Really easy to do. Instructions aren't very detailed, I was a little hesitant at first, but just went through with it. Basically you use the "Odim" program on your PC to flash a new kernel and ROM to your phone via USB cable. Takes about 6 minutes total, basically you're just rebooting your phone twice. Once it's done, you can't even tell you did anything, except now you have root access. Good stuff.

#1 root item for me, "AdFree" app. So nice to have those pesky banner ads gone. Ability to add a reboot widget to one of my home screens is nice to have again too. So far I can't find the "Wireless Tether" app I had on my OG Droid, but not a big deal. I'm sure I will find another one soon. Don't really use it often enough to care.
