    Absolutely. Already working on it. The alldroids exploit has quite a bit of potential. I have to find myself a linux box, but I'm getting what I can done with the Win 7 driver.

    check out the "why?" thread

    Rooting allows one to modify and tweak the phone in a wide variety of ways. From themes, alternative fonts and custom system apps to heavily modded complete operating systems. I can't wait to get a CyanogenMod or similar ROM on my Droid. :)

    Also new, but since the OS is open source, shouldn't "rooting" be a fairly simple task? Even more, shouldn't that be an option in the first place for open source?
