Social: How did you find Beta Archive?

Post by compgeke »

I really don't remember how I found my way here but I think I was searching for any version of Neptune to prove to a friend that Neptune does exist. I now enjoy it here because unlike other sites, it is closely monitored.

Google, through trying to found out more information about Longhorn (specifically, build 4074). I've taken more of an interest in the 9x builds though... less download size to them :P

Google while trying to collect all builds of Windows Codename Longhorn. Hope the FTP server is always backed up.

I found about BetaArchive from one of my Google searches about Windows. Actually, I'm glad that I found this website, a great community to be in.

By Despratley looking for windows whistler 2416. I had looked everywhere until I was redirected here. I am still awaiting FTP access but that is going to be the first thing I download when I get access!

I like 2419 too, but it has activation. 2416 is just as good without activation.

When OSBA shut down I heard that this was starting up. I didn't create an account until sometime after though.

Well TeamViewer is to help someone and that person only gives you remote control if he/she trusts you.
