It's got a lot of backend changes, which greatly improve the performance of the OS. So it is really a new OS.
It's just not as major a change as something like Windows 95 - 98 - me (ugh) - 2k - xp - vista - win7. It's still a big change in the backend, but not as much visually. Hence the much cheaper price for upgrades, and full versions. Not to mention while Win7 is a big change over Vista it is using a lot of Vista's setups with a refined core (still based on Vista's).
I'm pissed cause my Technet account is toast so no free copy for me unless I get someone to generate me a key.
