Funny. A retired military guy and avid gun enthusiast....who happens to know more than anyone I know about these devices, telling a Farmer and avid rooter that this phone is going to attract more outdoorsmen than geeks or hybrids.

Me....I am an 8th grade dropout who loves technology as well as many mouth-breather activities.....just so you know I am niether offended nor judging anyone here.
Actually not retired, I just did one enlistment (I'm 24) and and got out, now i'm going to college for Computer Science :P

When you look at it, let's say this device sold 10,000 units and let's say that there are 100 active forum members here. Overall it's a very small group who are actively involved compared to the whole (in short, you guys are the outliers)...

@rjglenn -- The trend is rooting has always been towards unlocking the kernel because once you have that done, you don't have to worry about different exploits. Many devices (mainstream) devices have the patch, it's just that so far, there have been three really big exploits that worked cross-device (gingerbreak, z4root (rageagainstthecage), and zergRush.)
First Droid: Htc Aria (AT&T) (rooted, s-off, and i forget how many different roms on it)
Current Droid: Xperia Play R800x rooted by zergRush unlocked by Alejandrissimo, now running my own CM9 build (or build your own) and a slightly modded FXP kernel & lovin' it.
Casio Commando -- trying to build a custom kernel/Rom.
