I've been debating keeping our Data Interoperability licence or going with the full FME ESRI Edition.
I'm looking for advice.

Workbench you can control 'Manipulate' your data in a much more refined way. (see below) Feature Merging Attributes only with another geometry)
Excellently logging (on screen/to file)
Open Beta Program - Nightly Builds can be used by all (good to test new features or see fixes)
Consistent upgrades 4 per year (Released in January, Q1-Q4 as Service Packs)
Better Support (contact with-in 24hrs or less)
*Only a user of FME not associated with them. Floating Licenses - Can easily be increased.
Next Full Release is out 20th January 2012 (FME Desktop 2012)
Certainly the main differences that I'm aware of that would make me lean towards a complete license to FME Desktop are as follows:
To be clear I believe that if you already have an Interop license there is an option to upgrade that license directly with Safe if you ask, that will get you full-fat FME Desktop, then you just have to pay the year 2+ maintenance and so on.
Hope that helps.
