I'll leave this open for now as you are not asking where to get it or how to bypass activation, etc. You just seem to be interested in learning of new features that Longhorn may have when it is released. Just be careful in this conversation or the thread will have to be closed.
The Longhorn build you have is not even a beta as yet. It's a very early milestone build.
As of now, it's pretty much nothing more than XP with a few interface "enhancements." The WinFS file system seems to be present, but it's extremely buggy and causes a general slowdown, thus pretty much defeating it's purpose.
So there's pretty much nothing more than the changes in the UI as of now. As pointed out earlier, it's not due until 2005, so there's a lot that needs to be added.

Playing games such as kings quest 3 and space quest.
Oh yea, the legendary Commander Keen!
Think they ran off DOS though
Longhorn name wasn't chosen randomly. Remember that Windows XP was code-named Whistler and the next version of Windows, at the time, was code-named Blackcomb. Both of these names come from ski areas in British Columbia, close to Microsoft's headquarters. At the foot of Whistler Mountain, there is a saloon named Longhorn that serves the local skiing population. So if you're ever in the area and want to take in some local color, Longhorn is a nice stop… after you're done with Whistler.
