I haven't really played around with pivot's in Excel or worked in coding with Access yet, but the ribbons are incredibly intuitive and very easy to reconfigure.

I have a feeling a lot of the work I did before in coding/working on formulas and so forth will now be taken up by the integrated wizards and options just because of how easy they are

From what I have read, an online, free version should be available soon to try out so that's a big plus.

And for the nay-sayers comparing this and Office 2007 to Open Office, I highly recommend you get your brains checked. There is a massive difference in functionality between the 2 suites and once the FREE, online version of Office 2010 comes out, this will be made apparent. There is a time and a place for Open Office, but it is NOT in a corporate environment and not on the system of a professional user and definitely not a power-user.

Faster than damn fast? How fast is that exactly and why do we need Word to open up any faster than damn fast?

The ribbons? Yes, it has the ribbons but they are much better now, more intuitive and almost completely customizable.

Screens are available all over da intranets through a quick search

The Microsoft site has videos as well.
