None of these are mine; I was just searching eBay tonight for a while and these are all the neat-o things I ran across. Thought some of you might want them. ^^

Unopened shipping box from MS with Windows 95 Upgrade on 3.5" Floppies: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Windows-95-oper ... 2c5f87a481

Windows XP Commemorative Edition: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Microsoft-Windo ... 43ad496412

I'm curious about that ME Beta 3 and .NET Beta 3, but I'll leave the purchasing up to those of you who like to have the physical media. =)

we already have .NET Enterprise Beta 3, which is 3590, but probably those CDs are interesting because they are completely untouched :) (we also have ME beta 3)

Don't just jump to conclusions that we have that. For all you know it's a build we don't have.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
Nothing against TheCollector1988, but both, the Windows .NET Server Enterprise Beta 3, as well as the Windows Me (Millenium Edition) Beta 3, could easily be builds that we don't have.

In case you haven't noticed, Microsoft reuses the same name tags ("Beta 3" is an example here) for numerous different builds of Windows, meaning that for example, if Build 10 was a Beta 1 release, that doesn't mean that Build 11, Build 15, and Build 20 were not Beta 1 releases.

Also, even if we do have the builds themselves, there are times where we don't have the particular copy of the builds themselves, and/or our own copies are incomplete (for example, in early April 2008, after having purchased it in February that year, I released a Migration Planning Kit of both, Windows 95, codenamed "Chicago", Build 490 - an entire CD-ROM this time, and not just the Setup files as was the case with our own copy, and a Microsoft Office for Windows 95 Pre-Release, on two seperate CD-ROMs, and although we had Millenium Build 2499.7 in English and Japanese, we didn't have it in German or Korean, which is why I released both copies in late May that year, from two MSDN CD-ROMs that I had).

So, it could either be a different build, or it could be a copy of an already available build that we don't have (despite the build's availability), but even if it's neither, it would still add a lot of value to a real collector's collection.

EDIT: I noticed that the one link is for the following:

1 Windows .Net Enterprise Beta 3 Course # 2283a Microsoft Official Curriculum
1 Microsoft Works with Money disc with Product Id
1 Microsoft Money 2004 Standard disc
1 Microsoft Intellitype Pro 2.2
1 Microsoft HomePublishing 2000 3 disc set
As you can see here, the release of Windows .NET Beta 3 Enterprise is obviously a special release for the Microsoft Official Curriculum, which we don't have, as far as I know.
