    Microsoft has published the first installment of the "Acccess Show", a series of promotional videos about the new features in Access 2010:

    The Access Show

    This 24 minute installment (245 MB!) concentrates on new ways to tweak the end user interface, and on publishing an Access database to Sharepoint so that it becomes a web application.

    I cant see where to download the video, even though i have just had a multifocal inserted into my right eye.
    What a difference already.

    You can view the demo by clicking on the triangular arrow in the middle of the preview image.
    You can download it to disk by right-clicking the preview image and selecting "Save target as..." from the popup menu.
    (Also, after viewing it in the browser, the video file will be in your browser cache)

    The comments on the page where you click to run the demo video certainly run the gamut from raves to rage! And there are also some interesting topics on the Access 2010 Intro Blog that you can link to from that page as well.

    That demo is impressive, a lot to learn though.

    Episode 2 of the Access Show is available:

    The Access Show - Episode Two | The Access Show | Channel 9

    It's not very interesting, in my opinion - mostly talking heads, and only a short demo that doesn't show anything new if you've seen episode 1.

    The development emphasis seems very much to be on web applications (SharePoint, Access Services).

    Agreed - for large or distributed organizations it is probably an attractive concept, though there are still some limitations with web user interfaces to a database. And for small organizations (which most of my clients are) there won't be much interest in those features.

    The third part of "The Access Show" has been released:

    The Access Show: Managing Access Databases with SharePoint

    It's almost 43 minutes long, so a correspondingly big download.
