    its pre-beta, its alpha! its very buggy! theres also a memory leak, dont get it! i tried out build 4029 (latest leaked one) and its not worth getting wait until atleast BETA1 if you are desperate to try it!

    new features of the top of my head:

    new IE (includes pop-up blocker and download manager)
    winFS file storage support
    new look and sidebar

    i have tried longhorn 4015and as far i no microsoft hasnt replaced the file system in that one. It gets really buggy when u remove the WinFS from Windows Components.
    edit:my advice is to go with the build 4029 and lemme no if its ne gud

    Bad Points:

    It's sooooooooo slow!
    It's very buggy
    it has a serious memory leak
    most features dont work
    activation takes a while to get around (unless your good or know exactly what your doing you will probaly fail, like lots of people i know&#33
    long setup time, to get it sort of workable after installation
    can mess up your whole hdd
    some drivers wont work
    180 day time bomb
    its unsupported

    could think of more if i wanted too!
