Mission control looks awesome, and will help me keep work environments seperated from other stuff.
Versions is going to be the shit for me. I make tons of tiny changes in lots of different documents all the time, so this is going to be very useful for getting back something I deleted on a whim.

Wait... Only on the Mac Appstore? No installation disks?BLEGH

Making updates via appstore is a creative way to say goodbye to piracy, maybe. As far as iOS5 goes, I WANT.
