For most people, I agree that they probably wouldn't care going through the trouble for the benefits. I have a original Samsung Captivate Galaxy S, and the initial benefit of rooting (for me anyway) was to remove all the pre-installed AT&T apps that I had no intention of using. Without root access, you are unable to remove these apps.

The second benefit for me will be to breathe new life into my old Galaxy S by installing a ICS rom, since AT&T and Samsung aren't planning on upgrading older devices.
