I have Visio 2007 in my computer and it is working fine. But I had come across many forums where every is of opinion that one should upgrade Visio and go for Visio 2010. The thing I am not able to understand is why will someone opt for Visio 2010 if they are happy with previous version. What is new about Visio 2010?
