I personally have been using 2010 since yesterday afternoon and so far love it, it looks nicer, the intellisense is great, the text is sharper which, while a small thing does make a huge difference. I personally think that M$ are building their way back up again with decent software, VS 2010 and windows 7 (which I also think is a great OS)
