This is a "look and feel" upgrade. Longhorn's supposed to support a 3D interface allowing you to see windows in perspective, pivoting them in any direction with transparency features.
Also requires Microsoft's updated Windows Graphics Foundation, which is fancy talk for a newer, more powerful update to Direct3D. As the nextgen graphics cards of 2006 will be carrying the load of the Longhorn OS, due to the graphic-heavy GUI, the new driver and the Graphics card are going to have to assist the OS in crashes and fault recovery.
Look and feel, right now. Look and feel.
