in ArcGIS 9x I was using ArcView 8x conversion tools to convert Mapinfo files into shapefiles. It seems that this tool is missing in ArcGIS 10. Is the Data Interoperability extension the only way to convert Mapinfo files and is it available in the ArcView package?

thank you in advance for your cooperation
