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.

Andy, We all know how you found your way here because you are the creator and we all thank you for the idea :wink:

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

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.

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

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