Running things as root should be avoided if possible.
Because I work on computers other than my own?
Because I have more than one computer?
Because I sometime reinstall the OS?
Because I don't have magical fail-proof hardware?
Because udev gets messed up and apt-get replaces the rules file?
This method is simpler for new users. The adb tools are straight from google so can be trusted and the udev approach just adds a lot of complexity.

I do not seem to have any problem using 64-bit debian, which you probably know Ubuntu is based on. I have even built the AOSP with it without much trouble. Though, deploying it to a device is a different matter for me.
