    Maybe you want to wait to root until 2.2 comes out? I dont know thats what I am going to do....

    Besides that for apps I have (not including pre-installed google apps etc.)
    Backrounds
    Astro
    Dropbox
    Facebook
    Google Finance
    Movies (flixster)
    Nesoid
    NFL mobile
    Quadrant
    Ringdroid
    Shazam
    Tickl - Push to Talk (AWESOME!!)
    Urbanspoon

    I am debating getting Launcherpro but may wait until after 2.2 as well.

    LauncherPro is worth getting now, it should still work once 2.2 comes out considering people are already using it with 2.2

    I am gonna root. there is a nice little program that allows you to root and unroot by a click of a button. very easy and I not sure if I want to update to froyo yet untill I know that root is possible thank you for everything else.

    root means gives you adminstrative rights to your phone it allows you to change things you are not suppose to change. if you dont know what you are doing changing things can be very bad.
