The new skin is going to be the most noticable difference in Vista. Probably the biggest under-the-hood thing will be DirectX 10 which will scrap all backwards compatability with older games so that graphics can advance at a much faster pace (like it could get any faster!).

I dont think Businesses will have any need for this upgrade, but I could be wrong. This is mostly for gamers and the computer illiterate home user.
