    Ok, I've heard that it requires a "modern processor"(fwiw), and found some speculation here.

    It apparantly needs a pretty decent(dx9 anyway) graphic card for the new graphics features built in.

    Here's a site that might be of interest.
    That's all I know.

    Longhorn has been renamed Vista, don't expect it for at least another year.
