.NET, XP and Longhorn

What is the relationship of .NET to XP compared to .NET's relationship to Longhorn?
Is that even a proper way to phrase the question?

Is there any relation between .NET and XP? XP doesn't even come with the
runtime preinstalled right - so i don't think there is nothing to do with
both.

I think Longhorn is based on .NET - i mean a rewrite (at least of many
portions) with .NET - dunno for sure...

Just to add:

Quoting from winsupersite @ http://www.winsupersite.com/faq/longhorn.asp
"Win32 API from previous Windows versions is being replaced by a new
..NET-based API called WinFX, for example."
