I found some old Neptune screenshots and concepts on my old hard drive and enjoy!

Look like there are concepts and real screenshots. Those screenshots came from at least 3 different builds.

Note: I have no idea where they came from. The pictures were dated early 2014.

Some of them are concepts we already saw, the WMP one is just WMP7 running on Windows 2000, some are just from Neptune 5111, and I'm pretty sure the one you posted came from an actually pretty good mod of Windows 2000 called Neptune SP4, which adds features from Neptune and Windows ME to 2000 SP4.

The one he posted was first published by the site ActiveWin in July 1999. So it's an actual screenshot of early Activity Centers on early Neptune (or Windows 2000 build 2072?). They look very similar to the ones in Millennium build 2348, which matches the timeframe.

To me, it look like an actual Neptune build and it does feature a Neptune branding. Did a reverse image search with TinEye and looks like they were posted by Paul Thurrott.
