SharePoint 2010 and movign to a new farm
In a situation where it may be easier and more preferable to create a new farm and "hopefully" restore all of our data and sites from the old farm in to the new one. But I am in new ground here and not sure if its possible to create a new farm and site collection then restore from a backup. Has anyone done this before? All I want is our content and sites that we have created over the years to be restored.

I've just logged on to ask the same! I nee to transfer a bit of content from our old Sharepoint 2007 VLE to the current SP2010 one and wondered if anyone could recommend any decent software to do it.

Done similar before - we're currently in the middle of migrating content between two 2010 farms.

If you want the simpler option, a backup-restore is much easier to run through and should work without any problems (again, I've never had any in the past). Just a handful of stsadm commands.
