Question [Q] Should I root my Kindle Fire HDX 7" tablet?

The only experience I have with gaining root access on a mobile device is with jailbreaking my iPod 5g. No other experience with hacking at all. So what does rooting do? What advantages are there to rooting and should I do it? My tablet is a Kindle Fire HDX 7" and I've been wanting to root it since I got the thing.

Should you root? Well, a big YES if you want to remove bloat and install a proper ad blocker, amongst other things.

However, the current versions have not been rooted YET.
I build computers. And I play with 20 kilovolts and launch things with a 24KJ induction launcher. And these hobbies don't go together!!
The funny thing about clouds is that everyone can view them and they eventually disappear.
