A New Prayerbook

If you've come to Shabbat morning services recently, on a Shabbat when a new Bar/t Mitzvah isn't being called to the bimah for the first time, you've gotten a chance to experiment with a draft version of the Reform Movement's new siddur (prayerbook), Mishkan Tefillah. Mishkan Tefillah is a very different siddur from Gates of Prayer, in terms of it's layout, language, philosophy and much more.

I've heard from a few people, casually, what they think about this new siddur, but I'd love to hear more. So, tell me - what do you think about it? What do you like, and what don't you like about it?

It's not at all certain that this will become our "official" siddur, but there's a decent enough chance that it will (although there's a lot of time and process between here and there!), so I'd like to start hearing opinions now. So - what do you think?
