It's an issue that to play with Sharepoint 2010, we need a 64bit Quad Core machine with minimum 4Gb of RAM. Sure, current technology and costs are low enough that this will not be an issue for a production server, but for a play/developer machine we just want to use any old thing near us.
In a rapidly evolving featureset though, the people at Microsoft are mapping Access functionality to Sharepoint data and Sharepoint workflows. A lot of current Office gurus who are not Sharepoint will groan and say "Who asked them for this?" but this is for me a great idea - Access is a great desktop tool and not a bad LAN networked tool. But to bring some of the familiarity of Access to Sharepoint is a win-win for both Access and Sharepoint camps.
Time will Tell.

I remember years ago, I took a Microsoft VB6 sample and constructed an Access 97 version of HTML Text email using the Web Browser control. I just had a look at it here:
By Gee, that was 2000, it's now 2010 - 10 years ago!
Anyway, Stephan Lebans added more zest to the project and in his HTML editor webpage, he has an example/demo file that pops up a form where you can edit rich text and most importantly embed a graphic.
The new Access 2007 and 2010 Rich Text formatted memo fields and Text Control can't embed a graphic. Or I haven't figured out how.
My next issue is how to use that content and send it via SMTP - you see, if you embed a local file reference with file:///, that won't go - you need to turn it to a cid reference, then send the graphic as well.....

There are Public Internet Locations and Toilets - gotta woke on that xml import to Excel though - it's constipated.in reference to: http://data.australia.gov.au/414 (view on Google Sidewiki)
