Speaking just for myself, it's because I get sick of typing sudo apt-get 
blah, sudo ifdown, sudo ifup, sudo 
anything-else-that-I-usually-do-as-root, to the point where I've never 
made it more than a few days on a (K)ubuntu install without giving up 
and setting a root password :)

That said, I still agree that for most people, it's a better way to go 
than having a root user.
