Thinkpad users -- talk to me about the trackpoint (also known as the little red eraser thingy on the keyboard).

For those of you who own a Thinkpad laptop -- do you use your trackpoint? If so, why? What do you do with it and why is it awesome? What is it especially good for? Where does it fall short?
For those of you who have a Thinkpad and don't use the trackpoint -- why not? What about it doesn't work for you?
And if you've gone from a Thinkpad to another laptop or vice versa, I'd love to hear your thoughts too.
From what I've seen, there's a small, but extremely committed minority of people who love the trackpoint, but there's also a learning curve that keeps many people from really getting into it.
Just trying to gather as much anecdotal information as I can.
