It comes with Exchange 2010 which I think is the biggest change. All looks very similar if you have been using 2008.

The newest server version is 2008 R2. SBS 2011 is the 2008 R2-implementation of the SBS-server.

SBS 2011 comes with Exchange 2010 and is based on server 2008 R2

Win 2008 32 bit is based on the vista kernel

Win 2008 R2 is based on the windows 7 kernel

"Exchange 2003 cannot be installed on Windows Server 2008, but will be supported with Windows Server 2008 domain controllers."
