If I'm not mistaken (it's a long time ago), there was one BIG change in 5 that stood out from all the rest: The GUI. Before 5, the GUI had consisted of a lot of loose windows spread over the desktop, and you could see the desktop and other open programs in the background (same was true for Delphi in the first versions).

From 5 and onward, the GUI changed, and you had ONE main MDI parent form open in which you had the other forms and panels, just like now in VS.NET.

I loved that, because that made it much cleaner and more easy to navigate around in.
