Book 10 was a filler book.  I personally liked all 11 books, but then again I am one of those people who enjoys just reading about that world.  RJ did a fantastic job showing how people defend their prejudices and preconceptions, as well as their hubris.  Even the main characters are not free from this scrutiny.  The prophecies of the Dragon state that he will break all bonds and traditions, yet Elayne refuses to accept the throne from him.  Rand is proof that the Last Battle is coming and soon, yet the Aes Sedai, who of all people should know better, are too set in their ways to place the preparation over their traditions and foolish arrogance.  All of this allows us to more easily understand why the Forsaken can so easily manipulate situations and cause chaos. 

As for your question, Shaggy, pardon my french is an old insult, insinuating that the French language itself is vulgar, therefore all vulgar words can be considered French. 
I wanted to write something profound here, but I couldn't think of anything.

A further explaination:
"Vulgate" (a language that is derivative of Latin )  developed in Gaul (present day France) and is a mixture of latin with Germanic influences . It was the language spoken by the commen people in much of the western part of theRoman Empire by 350A.D. The educated  saw Vulgate as a corruption of Latin developed by those they considered at least half-barbarian. Thus the derivation of the word "vulger" ( uncouth  or "lowbrow") and the meaning of the offending phrase.

Oh, I see…so I'm going to go edit that post. Thanks for telling me; I didn't mean to insult anybody.  ;)

I just started reading Mistborn and shot through part 1 in one night (no, not that impressive to most, but if you knew my schedule, you'd find that a feat).  I've believed Mr. Sanderson had the right stuff since listening in on some of the Writing Excuses podcasts, but actually seeing the work firsthand almost leaves me awed.

AMoL is going to be amazing, no matter how many pieces they cut it into.

Opinion. I hope I will be able to agree when it comes out, but I'm keeping low expectations so that hopefully, I will not be disappointed; I will be amazed.

Book 10 was a filler book. 

It was odd in that the first time it seemed to be so but after reading Book 11 and then re-reading the series Book 10 has a lot of subtle stuff that leads into the explosions of 11 (Book 12 (and 13?) should send the series into the stratosphere. I hope it ends with a few wicked twists like Hero of Ages and shows all of us speculators that we don't know anything.

I think RJ has made that pretty clear already.

Brandon's website has a progress bar in the upper left. However, the line edits there are only for the first 100,000 words of the book, and the first half is at least 400,000 words. The release will definitely not be mid-summer. October/November is still the earliest possible date we'll see it.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

2009??

A 2008 release date would be tricky at this point.

Or were you thinking 2010?  Man, that's an unfortunate thought.

I dont "know it" - but Brandon has given us alot of info. If timeframes hold water, we could see a book around late July. It would be a stretch, but could be done. More than likely, October though... cross your fingers.

Aye, I'm thinking the original estimate of this fall as the earliest for anything is probably going to hold true.  And that's only if they do decide to split the book.
