On the galaxy S it is 2 times as fast as a normal reboot (clocked: 19s. hot reboot, 43s. normal reboot) Don't know about the EVO CM6.
+ is that one can kill all tasks at once and start with a clean system (snapier)
+ if one has to reboot because of a change: faster
+ beautiful reboot animation
- the system isn't totally reinitialised from the start (properties from build.prop aren't reset), but then again why does it have to?
- don't know yet.
I see it as a fast task killer, system memory cleaner and a handy, fast reboot option if changing something requires that.
