Just a bug most likely

it must be a bug, its contradicting itself. It says Windows XP, and then 5.0 (NT version), But NT 5.0 is Windows 2000.

If you connect to sites with script that could show your OS it'll tell you Neptune is Win2000...

^^ I don't understand that, I thought that Neptune was a project parallel on Whistler, but it didn't make it. I can remember a quote on Winsupersite ('Windows Neptune, the Windows that wasn't').

It was a project running parallel with Whistler, still built on the 2000
code as was Whistler, i'm guessing it's because it's build string is higher
than 5.0 as is 2000's, tweakNT is figuring that it must be XP which is
5.1, Neptune's is 5.50.5111
I've been trolling through Neptunes files on & off for a couple of years,
& often still see windows 2000 strings in files, when I compare the
files to 2000 though I see different resources or code as if it were
re-written for Neptune, even when finding NT5 files with pe file dates
within the same week...
I've found Win98 & ME files in it as well...

Wasn't Neptune going to be the replacement for ME, using a Windows 2000 core, to make it more stable, but with all the features and extra apps from ME, which would account for the 9x/ME files in there.

Neptune was build on Windows 2000, and at that time, it was a workstation/professional editon os. Even though it was build for home user, the os still thinks it's was a workstation os. Hence home edition doesn't even exist back then, microsoft introduced it in whistler. I believe 2250 is the first home edition build. I never seen any home edition below that.

the statement by Microsoft about Odysee (2000 Home) is:"all things and ideas of Wndows 2000 Home have been put into Windows XP"

Odyssey was actually supposed to be the successor to Windows 2000 Server

Yep, and one of the perfect example where you can see the similarities between XP and Neptune is the logon screen, or the "Wireless Link" in the control panel.... Was / is avaiable in XP =)



PS @ KenOtah: Neptune is 5.00.5111.

Sad that nVidia drivers don't work =(

Then perhaps I should elaborate on my statement above...
Regardless of the fact that the system properties of Neptune states it's
version as being 5.00.5111 {which I might also add states it as being
Windows 2000 professional - which clearly it isn't }
The fact is, ALL neptune specific files {90+% of Neptune} is hard coded
as having a file version being 5.50.5111.1
If this weren't the case then running the setup.exe on XP would give a
message as stated below...
Quote:
"This CD-ROM is from an older version of Windows than the one you are presently using.
Setup functionality from this disk will be disabled."

However it doesn't, when running the Neptune Setup.exe on XP it says
Quote:
"This CD-ROM contains a newer version of Windows than the one you are presently using. Would you like to upgrade to Windows Neptune?"

no, they haven't hit 5.1 yet

for the 5.50.5111, thats problary a explorer or internet explorer file
since explorer and ie is version 5.5, they use 5.50 instead of 5.00

even in xp, explorer and ie uses 6.00.2600, it doesn't mean NT 6.00

You might want to dig your Neptune CD out then & have a look at the
file versions in the I386 directory, 90+% of the file versions are 5.50.5111.1
Not just a few as you've just said...
