They really changed completely how it works inside though. For example, 
your cursor can now be in the normal Word text and when you search for a 
string using the Find operation, any texts in equasions will also be 
found. Switching between equations and regular text feels very smooth, 
completely unlike the old MathType-based Equation Editor. And it is all 
Unicode-based, does not use the old hack encoding stuff that MathType 
used to be based on.
