    The place to start learning would be webos-internals.org... That should get you started.

    my head hurts
    please read all the comments
    people have already told you where to get the information you need
    go to the homebrew section or the web OS Development section
    you can get all the information there
    but be warned "rooting" your pre is not for novices
    if you really want to customize your pre learn Linux programing
    or wait till Active Home Screen for Palm Pre comes outif that's what your looking for

    Here's a link: Main Page - WebOS Internals

    This should have been the first answer you got.

    What can a "rooted" Pre do and is it worth the trouble? I have some homebrew apps on board but that's about it...

    To root into a Pre means you have access to it's Linux OS and filesystem. You can alter anything you want in the filesystem.

    While many homebrewed apps do not require you to have access to the Pre's linux OS, there are special apps that do require rooting since it alters certain files that wouldn't be possible with the SDK. You also can hack/modify files to change boot up colors, sounds, etc.

    Some examples:

    Confirm Deletion on Email - WebOS Internals
    Hidden Features - WebOS Internals
    Backing Up via Rsync - WebOS Internals

    I am currently developing a homebrew app store. And I may have to have a Windows/Mac installer to install services I may need.

    This honestly would be pretty cool to do

    If anyone knows of an App similar please share cause that would be great
    You don't have to jailbreak a WebOS device. It's open by design. Just enable developer mode, connect with novaterm (I think it's novacom on windows), and you will be root at a busybox shell.

    I just wish palm would have made luna run as a nonpriviledged user, and then allowed us to 'officially' make mojo apps that are front ends to powerful linux commands underneath. Having to write a java service for that kinda sucks.

    But I digress. Look here: Main Page - WebOS Internals
