Could the earliest stages be like this?

"This PRERELEASE version of Microsoft Cougar is under construction"

Nice fake screenshot! (I just can't think it's real for one second)

But I suppose the earliest stages might be like that!

Nope, it actually is a real screenshot.

EDIT: I've uploaded the warning.exe file. It is here: http://www.monkey-hole.co.uk/ext/WARNING.EXE. Enjoy.

EDIT2: Case on filename was wrong.

Code:
           13       Q.   And you are referring to the code name

           14   Cougar to refer to the project.  And what was

           15   the goal of the project?

           16       A.   The goal of that project was to get

           17   IBM to adopt Novell's new DOS that we purchased

           18   from Digital Research.



that doesnt seem to me like a 95 prototype, or to you?

I made it using Borland Resource Workshop, out of Windows 3.1's WINVER.EXE program. I only didn't say before to prove how gullible the kids here are.

Out of interest, KenOath, how did you prove it to be fake? I thought I was pretty thorough.

Edited out, done once & for all...

I'm sorry if I've p*ssed you off KenOath, I was just having a bit of fun at the time, and only had warning.exe in the screenshot... just for it to be there.

EDIT: As to trying to find out how to make a fake; all I wanted to know was where I can't go wrong.

It seems that on here a lot of stuff I've said or done, or tried to do, has been either disregarded, disreputed, or I myself have been disrespected in other ways. So I've not made loads of contributing posts like some people. So I've not fixed loads of builds like Ken. So I've not got all the rare builds and arrogant autotheism like some certain person whose name begins with 'N.' Well, I'm sorry. I'm just trying to learn, and possibly reconstruct what I don't think I'll ever see real versions of.

I'd make a big fuss of leaving, only I'm not valued or respected enough for anyone to miss me, or give two tin parrots what I did, so I'll stay. Perhaps if I play my cards right I'll learn something. Perhaps not. Maybe Andy should have banned me after all that fuss that was made over my Windows 1.00 that turned out to be fake.

Thank you.
