Maybe it is handy to make a most wanted list, so non-advanced members (like me) can see what they can upload, or for seeing what we still don't have.

So something like this:

Most wanted:

1. Windows Neptune build 5000
2. Windows 0.99
3. Windows 95e

And make a list of things others want to have, in other format, so if windows chicago build 73g here is in .iso format, that someone make a bootable version, or make floppy images from it.

Isn't this why we have the offers and requests section?

All of them are EXTREMLY rare and only Microsoft has them, Windows 95e never released. Theres no chance to get them in near future.

If your a newbie, you might not be familiar with the term unleaked.
This means microsoft made said software, and we know it exists, but nobody has access to it and it is not on the internet. as namronia said, your examples are unleaked.

Well said Namronia. There's either a fake build called Neptune 5000 floating around somewhere or 5001 renamed to 5000 floating around.

Either way, I think the alternate point Zeehonden_3 made does have a lot of sense, we should create a stickied wish-list so all of the inspirational questions can be collated.

This possibly hasn't been created because everything that anyone is willing to share is already on Andy's FTP.

You might want to add MS-Dos 6.25 to the list, apparently it existed at one point
or another, there's all sorts of stories of it being fat32 / long filename supportive
& whatnot, who knows, until we have it in our grubby paws, we'll never know for sure...

We will never really know what got outside and what will get outside in the near future...
Maybe there are some people who have the most wanted stuff and they are not sharing them because they don't know the value of those...

I know i know, honestly i think that for 99.9999% you're right and noone (or noone willing to share) has them, but, hell, where's my 0.0001%? :P

The list is good idea anyway IMHO :D

A most wanted list would be good for people who get "new" betas. But also would a "what-we-already-have" list good, so that people who find something can look if it's already availible or if it's rare/whatev and they can post it here. Also would a "How do I identify a beta/version" guide very good, so that peoples with fewer knowledge can identify their maybe unmarked findings.
