    It's like a Installer for 2.X
    Cydia is also a lot better than Installer on 2.0
    It cannot connect to the server, its probably that your not connected to the internet

    Yes although I might be wrong but I dont think theres many games on there that are worth downloading.

    There are some applications and utilities however that will make your iPod Touch much more useful and pleasurable to use. PocketTouch, Scrobbler and MxTube do it for me!

    Well you can download apps, themes emulators.... Also, when you just downloaded an app, there will be a mini swod in the statusbar, this is Cydia's "AppLoad" It resembles how App Store loads app, and it does not require a respring. Just let it load and finish, because if you do force reset your iPod while it still has the swod, you can risk having a Real SWOD

    Cydia is a basic installer for jailbroken 3rd party applications.
    Installer has an EPIC GUI though...
