I'm a bit late to the party here but have finally installed
SW 2008 SP2 (from SW 2007 SP5). I have done this with some concerns
given the comments floating around here these last few months.
First impressions? I wish I had moved to 2008 earlier. Fantastic!
Even on this old Dell M60 it runs well (faster than 2007).
The left click icons and right click combo of icons and menu are
excellent - right out the box. Seriously I was up and running with
little downtime or relearning - OK I have used SW for over 10 years
but then I've also used many other apps as well and I can see
echoes of those in 2008 as well
Instant 3D! No question. For conceptual editing it is fantastic.
Also new tabbed interface works exceptionally well - the evaluation
tools tab allows me direct and fast global zebras for surfacing.
The realview environments work well for surfacing as well -
Overall - very happy indeed. If you are waiting and worrying - jump
Yes theres a lot of neat stuff and I've been playing with 2008
since beta 1 but I'm still doing my production on 2007 sp5.0.
In my opinion there's no reason to jump in all the way. I will
keep the old familiar version and "ease on down the road".
