    Well, among other things, you can tweak the way the OS handles memory, overclock, run Titanium backup, etc.

    There are so many extra things that you can do on a rooted Droid that you can't on stock. Titanium backup, WiFi tether, so on and so forth.

    The reason I say rooted is because the FRG01B is giving everyone lag problems. People complain that the home screen takes 15+ sec to load and be ready to be touched. Whether it be because their screens are overloaded or the build is bad, I OC my droid to 800 with the stock kernel, and it runs perfectly! And I think that almost every rooted user can say that OC to 800 isn't much at all.

    Rooting was worth it to me, just to be able to turn off those 4 lights on the bottom row when I want to (LEDs hack for root).

    Rooted FTW!
    I tried the non-rooted, but it was slower, and I couldn't OC or run my other cool root apps

    So far Rooted Droid's are wining, not a surprise! I agree with everyone. But like AMTrombley0924 side people are complaining about the home screen lagging and i'm having the same problem. but i don't want to O.C my droid because on the long run it does shorten the life of the phone. I O.C computers and have experience in that field.

    I am still waiting for a better OTA to be release to fix the home screen lag because i can't stand it when i use my GPS and it hangs and i get lot because it never refreshed.
    Till then i will wait. :D
