It looks just like the Raspberry Pi 2, but the Pi3 is the easiest upgrade you've ever seen in a product. It's the same low price and runs on the same operating systems, albeit on a more powerful core, as the 2. There shouldn't be much pain in transferring over projects that you have already done on the 2.

The giant upgrade is onboard connectivity. The 2 could be connected to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth using USB dongles, but the 3 bakes it right into the hardware. This means no more buying and debugging a dongle and you get those USB ports back for other peripherals. The Raspberry Pi Foundation was founded 8 years ago with a simple goal, to put affordable programmable hardware in the hands of those that want to learn. With thousands of Pi based project tutorials online and millions of these $35 computers sold, I'd say they're succeeding.
