For developers, easyier to debug code and attach to processes. Also with an added bonus of optimization being off so you can see the varibles values when debugging.
Its for the clients, optimization is on and hard to see values when debugging thats because there is no need for the compiler to add debugging information.
dll size matters in sharepoint where your constantly adding new dlls to the GAC, Release is smaller and faster to the counterpart debug being slower and bigger
