    :welcome: to the Droid Forums. Rooting a Droid will not help you run windows programs. They are still two different operating systems.

    Welcome! Glad you joined. Even though the Droid won't run Window apps there are lots of other reasons to root. Check out the hacking section in the forum. If you still have questions post and the community will respond.
