By the looks of it, the only update is a new-looking systray :p. But seriously, it does look a lot better and has some of those cool OS X looks...

Found this FAQ about Longhorn on hardware geeks board.

Longhorn FAQ by AlphaAlien

By popular demand HWGeeks brings you *drum roll* The Longhorn FAQ! This Longhorn FAQ is split into two sections, first part is what’s different and what to expect in the future of longhorn’s development. Second part is general questions about using Longhorn.

So what is Longhorn?
Longhorn is the next desktop version of Windows, currently slated for release in the second half of 2004.

What’s currently different about it?
Longhorn currently is sporting a redone styling engine, and a very early new visual style called Plex. It also has a new sidebar (Microsoft’s answer to OS X’s dock). It also has changes to Display Properties, where it now looks like an XML task pane. Longhorn also has backwards compatibility with older versions of windows. Also Longhorn is NT 6.

What’s going to be added to it in the future?
The GUI for Longhorn will be Direct3D accelerated. This doesn’t mean the interface with be 3D just that it’ll be accelerated, so it doesn’t depend on RAM for all the images anymore.
The sidebar will be added to a lot to allow for more customization and flexibility, also the taskbar will be able to integrate into the sidebar.
The Windows File System will be added. WFS will make it much easier to access relevant data and link between files. WFS is based on SQL database technology.
The look of longhorn will change dramatically (we all should remember how XP looked in the early beta stages).
The styling engine will change a lot.
My Games will be added My Documents.
Castle will be added to Network Neighborhood.
More services will be integrated directly into the OS; My Games will be the first of these to be noticeable.
Palladium will be added, unlike common opinion palladium is not big brother, but is necessary for an OS as tied into web services as longhorn will be.

What happened to Blackcomb?
Blackcomb has been scaled back to merely a point upgrade over longhorn for servers.

When does Longhorn go beta?
Longhorn will go beta around june 2003.
