    I like the majority of the changes tbh, been using the preview for a while now.
    The integration with 365/skydrive/sharepoint is much nicer now.

    Sounds like the first update that will come from Windows Update on my Surface!

    Has anyone noticed the new themes (under File » Office Account / File » Options)?

    Just installed on my desktop. First impressions - I still don't like the ribbon bar (but am getting used to it), It's even worse now it's all flat and two-tone. Really needs some 3D bezels, button effects. But I guess that doesn't work on a touchscreen?

    On the plus side - PDF editing!!! I can live with all the design choices just for this. In fact that's one feature that means I'd probably role this out whole school at my earliest opportunity. (I tested it on an old PDF and it worked surprisingly well).

    I love the polished 365/sharepoint stuff, it all works well so far and its far far easier to setup. I would expect google to churn out a service connector at some point too.

    I have to agree on the 2Dness although if there is the ability to change it would be good.

    Will put on a VM first and then if I like it on my laptop.

    Feature wise i like it, but the interface looks harder to use because of its plain look, i am not joking but Word 97 looked nicer. I just do not like the way MS is going with their products. I think Office 2010 will be my favorite for a while.

    I think it's a case of features trump UI for me. But they have seriously undone 25 years of UI design improvements. Last time I saw anything that, er, basic was the GEM desktop. Even Windows 3 looked prettier than this!
