    So i've been looking at the rooting guides, and now im tempted to root.

    Basically i just want to root in order go get rid of sense and some apps like Stock, Peep, News etc. etc. - will this be possible if I root?

    And suppose its possible, will i be able to update phone software (not sense, of course) as always without losing the super user abilities?

    Oh, and I have a generic desire.

    So, sense is not something "on top" of android, its incorporated into it on the desire?

    Sense is something on top but it cannot be removed simply by rooting but it allows you to delete system apps. My advice root and then get a custom vanilla ROM e.g. Cynanogen however I would wait as hopefully there will be some gingerbread builds soon!

    It's in and on. It's a customized android with a HTC kernel. Any update will break whatever you do so its best just to get a frequently updated custom Rom
