And what are you beliefs and results? I'm still undecided.
Well I am still new with my Droid but the task killer I'm currently running is working wonders for me.
I currently have "Advanced Task Killer Free" installed and I have it's widget on one of my home screens so I can click it easily and "kill" all the running apps. It has helped my battery life since I've downloaded it and it was, of course, free. =P
I call the widget by the name of "Kill Droid". xD
Just make sure to set appropriate ignores on apps that really are needed to run from time to time, like gmail, etc... personally I do not use task killers because I end up micromanaging the program and ends up in battery loss, but use it wisely.
The uninformed. Do a forum search.

It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.
Then remove the task killer and run for another seven days. Power cycle once a day and recharge when you are at 5% or less for power.
Record the results of your experiment. You'll find either no significant difference or that running without a task killer results in longer battery life.
