    I just rooted my stock 2.1 Droid and am playing with all things I now have access to. I realize I can now delete just about anything in the /system folder. I have already removed a few stock apps (like the Visual Voicemail). I suppose I could also remove unused wallpapers, sounds, etc., but would freeing up this space offer any benefit?

    Also, in the case of Pete's BB, the scripts simply rename the extension so they do not appear in the app screen, doesn't actually delete it.
    Deleting things may increase memory, but probably not enough to reap the benefits.
