Supposidly its going to be the TWC (trustworthy computing) flagship. If the conspiracy theorists are right it will be the death of fair competition for shareware and freeware programs against the multi-national corps... I think they are being a little dramatic but who knows.

Quoted from http://www.nicholasjon.com/index.php?p=843

"Microsoft is expected to recommend that the “average” Longhorn PC feature a dual-core CPU running at 4 to 6GHz; a minimum of 2 gigs of RAM; up to a terabyte of storage; a 1 Gbit, built-in, Ethernet-wired port and an 802.11g wireless link; and a graphics processor that runs three times faster than those on the market today."
