    I have been using MS Office (Professional) for 10 years now. It is no longer supported by M$, and some clients are starting to send me files in XLM format. While I have the MSO XLM Compatibility Pack and can read the files, the handwriting is on the wall; sooner or later, I'm going to have to upgrade. A couple of years ago I tried MSO 2007. . . for 2 days. Hated it. So my question is, is MSO 2010 (beta) a true improvement over 2007 and can you give me some idea of the learning curve time to become relatively comfortable with it after using 2000 for so long?

    2010 user interface is same as 2007. Microsoft is NOT going away from this new interface and you might as well get use to it.

    I had 2010 on my beta machine until the beta of Windows 7 was barking at me that it was going to expire. I have not installed 2010 on another machine.

    As above the ribbon is not going away.
    In 2010 it's possible for the non programmer to customize it (though it's buggy at the moment)

    Video and mp3 can be embedded and to an extent edited
    Transitions are MUCH smoother and look more professional
    Lots of bugs in minor 2007 are fixed.
    There are some neat (but well hidden) shape edit tools.

    2010 is a lot more intuitive than 2007. There are still some minor things to get used to, such as the macro key residing in the view submenu, as opposed to tools, but that generally resolves itself rapidly.

    All told, I like 2010 lightyears more than 2007.
