I am in the process of migrating a Sharepoint 2007 site to 2010. I was able to use and leverage Sharepoint Designer in 2007, but am NOT going to be able to do that in 2010. That feature has been "turned off." I developed multifaceted workflows in 2007, which contained timed email notifications, document approval actions, delete items after specific duration, etc. Generally speaking, since my only option for 2010 is "what's out of the box" (No Designer), can the native 2010 workflows come close to what I accomplish with Designer in 2007?

How about this... On your dev machine, create a globally reusable workflow in SPD. Export it, import it in Visual Studio. Deploy it to the production farm. There you have it, the power of SPD, without needing to use it in a production environment. See http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/70867/Reusable-and-Globally-Reusable-Workflows-in-ShareP
Ootb, the workflows in SPS haven't changed much (accept that, now you can take them as a starting point for your own custom workflows), so if you're not even allowed to create custom workflows and/or use SPD on a dev machine, you won't come close to what you could do in the past.

You can attach a Workflow from Site and SharePoint designer as well.
You donot get much options if you create a workflow from site, you have to use the default workflows provided by SharePoint such as Approval, Collect Signature/Feedback etc.
But if you need some advanced options like deleting items using Workflow then you have to create Workflow in SharePoint Designer for achieving this.
Hope this helps!!!
