No offense, but try google searching 'android rooting benefits' or 'why root droid' or anything along those lines lol :P
Well long story short, root provides you with the equivalent of administrator access on windows, which by default you dont have.
Root is required for a large amount of powerful apps, mainly based around the techy poweruser, some of the noteworthy ones include Titanium backup, setcpu, and alogcat.
Most importantly though, rooting lets you install a custom recovery mode, which lets you make a system restore point of sorts in case **** happens.
If you're wanting to root, just check out the tutorial that is stickied at the top of the D2G forum
Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.
