Releasing a best of 2000-2010 will be strange considering they may have only released two albums in this period.

I'll bet they throw in Elevation and Walk On, as they were both 2001 releases.  (Beautiful Day and Stuck in a Moment were on 90-00.)  Add in Dismantle and Horizon, two new singles, and that will be plenty for them to justify a Best of 2000-2010.  I just wish they would wait longer to do it - say after 2015.  Let the songs settle a little, you know?
My personal hope is that they discontinue 90-00 and release a 90-97 compilation that focuses on just their 90's material (i.e. no ATYCLB tracks, no "Electrical Storm", no "Hands that Built America") and rectifies all the problems of the old compilation (i.e. no lame remixes, WGRYWH, "The Fly", "Lemon", and "Last Night on Earth" are included.)  This would in turn free them up to release a Best of 2000-2010 compilation with:

Beautiful Day
Stuck in a Moment
Elevation
Walk On
Electrical Storm
Hands that Built America
Vertigo
Sometimes You Can't Make It
All Because of You
City of Blinding Lights
Original of the Species
NLOTH songs
New songs

That's a pretty good compilation right there.  They could even roll it back a year and throw in the remake of "The Sweetest Thing".  The MJB version of "One" is another possibility.

In 15 years time I'd like to see a Beatles style red and blue album. Maybe 1980-2000 & 2000- 2020. Assuming they keep going until then. That would be a good introduction to U2 for young people. The Beatles blue album was the first album I heard, I still remember how magical it was.

I think they'll release a Best Of 2000-2010, with all the singles from ATYCLB, even though they're already in the 1990-2000 CD. They really shouldn't have been in the 1990-2000 album, because they didn't really fit alongside the other songs. Doesn't matter too much to me, I won't be buying it since I have all the songs already.

Making a great double is one of the few things U2 have'nt achieved. The Beatles made 'The White Album' and the Stones made 'Excile'. Thought U2 may have wanted their own great double on file.

In a way, Achtung Baby and Zooropa can be considered as a double album since ZooTV supported the 2 albums.

I think they should release a best of 2000-2010 but exclude the ATYCLB songs and use only the songs from Atomic Bomb, No Line On The Horizon and a 3rd studio album to be released in late 2010. And of course, "Window In The Skies" should be on there as well as a brand new track or two.
