Disadvantages of SharePoint 2010 on Office 2003

Gilesmp used Ask the Experts™

I've been looking all over the internet for a document that displays what features you will miss out on if you stick to Office 2003 when rolling out SharePoint 2010.  I appreciate it is still a new piece of software so nothing appear to be out there yet.  This is why I have come to the font of all knowledge!

Thanks in advance,
