    I did purchase PDANet just to have it in case I really needed it But the only things I've used it for so far has been to run Speedtest.net to compare it's USB with Wireless AND Bluetooth tethering... I found USB PDANet to be almost full 3G speed (so fastest) when compared with Speedtest run directly on the Droid...

    Buddy of mine used tether.com on his blackberry then downloaded pdanet after i suggested it. He ran speed tests and pdanet was around 400/500 kbps and tether.com software was around 900. Its expensive though.

    They have a androidroid beta version, but I signed up early this week and have received nothing from them yet.

    I just used the DMupdater to root my phone for the first time and got the 2.0.6 droidmod rom specifically because I wanted wifi tethering to use with my netbook for work and play. I am currently typing this on the netbook using the Droid as a wifi router. I'm not a tech geek. It could not have been easier. Everything works and I lost no data. The phone seems smoother and faster too. If you need or want wifi tethering, I highly recommend the DroidMod (formerly Sholes) updater and their latest rom. :)
