Hmm.. the desktop's you refer to are you talking about something similar to 'workspaces' in linux?

I'd like to see a nice new GUI thats fresh, clean and elegant.

- Libraries' expanded to network locations (some workarounds in W7 but at a performance loss)
- Improved Home Group functionality (I run a domain so I don't care too much but would be nice for the friends\family that end up calling me for help)

How about included Microsoft Morro (or something similar virus protection)? :D

I'd like to see this as well but it is a very delicate game Microsoft has to play when introducing features that 3rd party companies hold a monetary share in. Personally I think it is ridiculous that they can't as long as there is the option to uninstall\disable the feature.

I'll be interested to see how they move to the cloud

Me too. I'd like a cloud service for user profiles and Azure based applications. (If you haven't checked out Azure registration is open for your personal site, I'm actually moving Yammm to it.)

Support for self hosted Azure services and cloud storage as well. (Basically improved WHS functionality)

I'd also like to see an improved Live Mesh and better integration.

Apart from all the rock tough solid features which we are going to discuss I'd like to see something related or inspired by "Sun Looking Glass" and "Beryl" in UI. Actually I'm way impressed by those eye candies... I know its not difficult for microsoft to make all those things...
