Its a lot of graphical overhaul is what it sounds like.

IMHO, I don't understand the practicality of it in a Corporate environment, but that's just me.

Gamers,graphics, and the movie industry would probably benefit the most. I can't see an accounting firm using these enhancements near as much.

Only time will tell what this new "Shiny graphics and pretty pictures" will bring.

Just some of my opinions.

the new beast...

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Barton running at 2.16 Ghz.
GeForce MX 4000 (mainly takes the load off the main system)
Creative Labs Audigy 24-bit sound.
Some Case from tigerdirect
512 MB Ultra DDR RAM.
80GB Seagate HDD
LiteOn CD-RW / DVD ROM drive.
currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.

The final release is all ready behind 1 year and it will be crap like XP Pro was before SP1

Don't buy it until the patches come out for it.
Microsoft has a history of putting OS's out and having the public complain about them, so they don'y have to debug everything themselves!

That is my suggestion!!
