They re-architected the kernel to allow it to have more than 32 processes(to up to 32k processes), 2GB of virtual memory per process and moved a lot of critical services in to kernel space (but then they did that to NT between NT 3.x and NT 4.0), but I couldn't find a technical source that explicitly said that the kernel was a complete rewrite. Do you have a source? I'd be interested in reading more. Stuff like that is fascinating.
