Don't let the marketing department fool you ;-)

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 the bundle formerly known as WinFX is
really just .NET 2.0 plus a bunch of additional class libraries.

The additional class libraries are

* Windows Communication Foundation (WCF): the WS-* based distributed
  software platform formerly known as Indigo which wants to replace
  .NET remoting and ASP.NET webservices

* Windows Workflow Foundation (WF): a workflow engine plus tools to
  define workflows (visually, of course).

* Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF): the Windows Forms replacement
  formerly known as Avalon.

* Windows CardSpace (no acronym): smartcard support for .NET.

And I think Windows PowerShell (formerly known as Monad), a really
cool CMD.EXE replacement, is part of it as well.

All in all I see potential for new tasks but the existing tasks only
use executables that are unchanged compared to .NET 2.0.

.NET 3.5 will come with new compilers and bring Language Integrated
Query (LINQ) to C#.
