Here are my big 3:

1. No VSOE needed for PCS or specified upgrades. Nice - no ridiculous deferrals of software revenue.
2. Ability to use a probability assessment for possible contingent revenue limitations. Very nice - don't have to assume the worst however remote.
3. Requirement to capitalize and amortize costs to fulfill a contract. Not so nice - I can't use my policy choice anymore to flow thru service costs in the period.
