for one it will have an all 3d interface. every window will be a texure, every effect will be 3d hardware accelerated. it is also supposed to be sporting a new interface.
the file system will be better by having files in a database system. since it keeps getting delayed i'm sure more features will be added to it. longhorn was originally going to be just a small update, like win98 from win95. Blackcomb was going to be the next major change for Windows(like XP was from 9x). however, MS decided to incorporate most of the changes into Longhorn instead.
