I was trying to find an inexpensive camera that could run scripts (specifically weeks long continuous timelapse).  My first digital camera was a Kodak DC-290, and it could run scripts, but I was wearing it out taking pictures every 10 minutes for a month. 

I knew about CHDK long before I even had a Canon camera. I now have an SX130IS running scripts!  I love it, and IF NOT FOR CHDK I MIGHT NOT HAVE BOUGHT A CANON CAMERA!!

I was looking for a compact camera with a possibility of HDR in 2007. With some google i discovered CHDK. Then i bought an A570 and the first thing i did was installing CHDK to it :-)
Now i bought an SX220 for the same reason. Great work!
