For those of you, like myself, who just put the finishing touches on your SharePoint 2007 sites, you might be thinking, "Oh no! I'm not switching and redoing the whole thing." Fortunately, there is a feature called visual upgrade that allows you to upgrade to SharePoint 2010 and doesn't affect the existing sites at all. Thus, you can use the SharePoint 2010 features going forward and choose when (or if) you want to upgrade the existing sites.
SharePoint 2010 gets a thumbs-up
As a former SharePoint avoider, then a reluctant site developer and administrator, I expected to be unimpressed with SharePoint 2010. Nothing could be further from the truth. The SharePoint development team deserves applause for hearing the requests of its user base and doing a great job implementing as many of those features as possible. SharePoint 2010 is now at the top of my "cannot wait for this to be released" list -- well, right below Exchange 2010.
