VSTO for VBA developers

A few months ago I posted about Office as a development platform with VS2008. While most of the features are easy for you to explore given the screenshots I posted, on my point 6 I only mentioned VBA<->VSTO interop with no further info. If that feature floats your boat (and it certainly will if you have existing VBA investments and would like to extend them with managed code), then go watch this 8' screencast on channel9 (or this soapbox video here).

There is also a great MSDN mag article on VSTO: Extend Your VBA Code With VSTO. It talks about VSTO and VBA interop in this section, and it also touches on ClickOnce deployment in this section.

Finally, relevant to the above, I thought I'd share a new (to me) acronym that I picked up this month: OBA (Office Business Applications).
