    Jailbreaking gives you mainly:

    - the ability to run native applications from your iPoT's SpringBoard;
    - the ability to browse and edit the contents of your iPoT's SSD via SFTP;
    - the ability to issue BSD-related commands (i.e. cp, rm, mv) via SSH after installing the OpenSSH and BSD Subsystem packages from Installer.app, after you Jailbreak, of course.

    Also you get to rub it in Apple's "I can't be hax0red" face. That's almost as specific as I can be.

    obviously not very much (as you can guess from the above answers)
    apart from the pure fun of doing so

    I had jailbreaked my iPod with Software 1.1.1 and was kind of disappointed
    I did not find one single game that was actually fun and worth playing for more then 10 min

    I know I will get flamed for this: but FOR ME, there is until now no real "killer application" thats worth it

    I think you only seen the apps available on the default installer, add community sources and add more other sources, you will find thousands (litteraly) of killer apps

    8gb?

    how much memory does jail breaking your ipod take up... If you had an 8gb ipod touch and still had a good amount of songs and videos, how much memory would jail breaking it take up??

    You can get everything you can possibly imagine - iPhone Apps, GBA emulator, Dictionary, Graphing Calculators, Games (Pong, Crayon Physics), and anything else you can possibly imagine on installer.
