    So was I at one point. Being a root user is a "hack" that enables the user to gain access into the "root level" of the phone. Doing that, I can customize it to do pretty much anything I want. You can (except on my droid x at this point) put a custom ROM on it (custom interface), you can gain access to use your phone as a tether without the knowledge of your phone company., you can slow down or speed up your phone's processor.

    In other words, you have access to where most folks don't and there are a lot of cool softwares written that you can use in your phone, that only root users can use. :)

    The droid X, has a "one touch" installable software that was written for idiots like me. Click it and I become a "super user." ;)

    Good luck!
