    Setting up a couple new wordpress sites today and being the lazy person that i am i am using fantastico. upon entering the dashboard area of the new wordpress 2.7, whole new look. cleaner but on the left rather than across the top. much more professional look. just going to take time to get used to it i guess.

    The new admin interface is sooooo much better.

    The more I use it, the better I like the layout.

    The old version was so messy and unintuitive.

    The new version has real menus and things are organized in a way that make sense.

    So much better!!

    I usually like the old version of things, but in this case I really like WP 2.7. A few plugins don't work yet, but the way to install them is awesome. Not so much for the themes, I hope they'll improve that too.

    So thumbs up!

    yeah, I like the 2.7 as well. I hate the interface of the old version. That's the reason I'm into blogger. It's easier to use before

    Nope, you are not alone. I hate the new layout. Had to install a drop-down menu plugin to even make it remotely intuitive.
