    Cyanogen mod is the custom ROM. Cyanogen is probably the most well known ROM dev, and his team bring out good ROMs for a lot of different phones.

    A large number of other people's ROMs for your phone may just tweaked/improved versions of the cyanogen ROM.

    As for which ROMs are best, you need ask other droid users in the All Things Root subsection of the Mototola Droid section. :)

    Cyanogen is a community modified version of AOSP (Android Open Source Project)
    It has some great modifications and an excellent tweaking system
    CM7 also has the T-Mobile theming engine, allowing (finally) themes that can be installed and uninstalled!
