The Setup has undergone another major change in the look, including a second stage where it is Configuring your System and then drops you into the Explorer.
It also mentions Windows 95 in the new bootscreen and in many places, but you also still see some Chicago references.
This build has also a problem displaying the MS-DOS Prompt, but it could be the included drivers.
Microsoft WinPad has also changed, it is now more landscape, a bit like a tablet instead of a phone style.

The Explorer itself is now running from Explorer.exe instead of CAB32.exe, the Start Menu has a sidebar and larger icons in the first menu and some (but not all) icons have been replaced with a newer style.
It also includes several new system components and applications, such as a App Install Wizard in the Control Panel, Disk Defragmenter, DriveSpace and ScanDisk (GUI) in the System Tools and Backup, Direct Cable Connection in the Accessories menu.
