  1. I don’t see much of a difference, but then again I’ve just switched from blogger to wordpress. WordPress rules over blogger by a long shot!

  2. its best to wait at this stage, the beta releases are expected to have loads of errors and bugs. Though, its always cool to see new version of wordpress, more features to make us all happy 🙂

  3. I’m so much excited with the launch of WordPress 3.0. Though since it’s beta release I’ll wait for a while to get the beta 2 and will install it on my live site.
    My plan is to put all my WordPress blogs into one single MU, since I can use one plugin in all the blogs.
    This will save lots of resources for my blog.
