Default i think it's rooted

hey guys,
i'm new to this forum and new to rooting, i've tried to do a lot of reading but some of it still confuses me. I rooted my g2x and have superuser, i'm just kind of wondering what to do next. I would like to remove some of the bloatware, but it says i can't delete those files. i have android 2.2.2 (what does that mean?) and a really long description for the baseband. i was wondering what all this mean. thanks for the help!
i def have a lot of questions and i've found it's easier to ask then to try to figure it out on my own, thanks guys

Now that you have root, download SystemApk Manager from the Market. I haven't tried it, but it claims that you can remove system apps once you have root. Be careful, because one wrong app removed and you risk an unstable phone.

Android 2.2.2 is just the version of the OS. Your version is more broadly known as FroYo.
