    Besides the obvious answer, I was wondering why someone would choose a rom that has no blur vs a rom with blur. From my reading it seems it may be due to some functionality issues but a better description would really be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The blur roms have the blur apps in it like the dialer, contacts, social networking and the motorola widgets. The other gets rid of those.

    Someone might choose a rom without blur because like all ui skins, it bogs down the android experience. stock android is unhampered by an extra layer running on top of already solid code and therefore has the potential to be faster and more efficient. Removing blur obviously comes at the cost of losing the blur widgets and functionality. In short, if you use the features of blur and dont notice a decrease in performance, by all means, run blur. If you're and android purist and prefer stock android, then run stock android.
