Quite a few reasons to root your phone if you ask me. Screen capture would be somewhat low on my list.

That's kinda like saying that RC cola is third, only behind Coca-Cola and Pepsi.
Google has 84% market share. Yahoo! is second at 6%. That's hardly comparable to Coke and Pepsi, who are more evenly-matched competitors, last time I checked.

May I remind you that Linux stands at around 1% market share, THIRD to Windows (around 96%) and Mac OS (around 3%)?

Well I know of a few other reasons, but none of which I'd benefit from. A lot of the main reasons, did become moot with 2.2 though, but I guess the reason "because you can" is a pretty good reason to do it still.

It was a joke....my attempt at humor to the claim that Bing was third ONLY to Google and Yahoo. Well, Google and Yahoo are pretty much the entire market.

Ok, I've been reminded. Of course, this is the desktop market. The server market is a bit different....and that's where I really utilize Linux and save on substantial licensing costs from MS.

Right now I use Bing, it seems to me that it's a little more organized. Also, I admire those homepage images.
