Default The reason to root.

So I was just wandering what is the reason behind rooting your phone? Hope this isn't a stupid question.

Remove system apps I don't use, move app data to sdcard, backup applications, overclock/underclock, tweak performance/interface with numerous apps that require root.

Does rooting void one's warranty?

As shocky said plus the ability to use custom Roms which allow you to change system settings such as the battery icons , pull down menu icons etc! And so we can play in the root forum ;-)
