Drow don't really have anything over Elves. All you get is the same build points for new players (28) plus 4 already placed for you (in stats you don't really need). Full breakdown's in the link in my sig.
I tried modifying exploiter for AA and all I really gained was rogue skills and mediocre AC. A great toon for leveling but not really much beyond.
Many people play AA's because they're tired of playing grab*** in the scrum around the boss or lobbing spells/heals from the periphery. I'd wager it's the same search for something different which is making them choose drow. If you're tired of people screaming about how uber they are and how certain classes/races are 'gimped or just fail bud', the natural proclivity is to make one yourself to (a) judge for yourself or (b) prove the detractors wrong. Of course there are still the drizztards but they usually gravitate towards TWF.

Are you bored enough to waste scales on a Min II Shuriken? Try this!
My first toon was an AA because I simply didn't know any better. I TR'd here into a Tempest and she's SO much better, though I do miss that absurd burst damage. When I want a fighter life on her I'll try something similar to the Helve's Angel (but I'm going full elf, that Dillitante isn't worth +4 to-hit).
If Dex/Finesse, Rapier/SS is nice. Used to be a lot better in the past though.
Spell Resistance. On a class that has a low Will save and likes to solo..... A held kiter is a dead kiter.
Drow are a very popular D&D race. People are naturally drawn to them.
I tend to make my Rgrs with a 10 Int anyway. Debated it for awhile, since a pure Rgr only has half ranks in UMD. But decided that the ability to get even a 30%ish chance of a res scroll is worth it IMO.
I would normally dump Cha on a Rgr, but the extra for UMD is kinda nice actually, and Wild Empathy is based on Cha. So at least a Rgr can get some good from it.
Biggest problem with Drow is since they are not a real 32 pt build, you are kinda stuck into making them just one way...or with little variety.
Many Rgr players would prefer a Str/Con....some Dex build and to dump everything else. Drow doesn't support that really.
I kinda like Drow for a Tempest build, but IMO, AA is the superior Rgr PRE right now.
