There was at least one build compiled ( proof: screenshot )

but only one screenshot was made ?

and when exactly was Monch abandoned/merged into Eiger/whatever ?

It's a shame that the date/time-stamp on the screenshot has been "rubbed out" so we can't see when the build was compiled.

Odd that the recycle bin surrounding background didn't partially overlay onto the
code name eiger wording on that screen above, makes you wonder, especially
seeing the date/timestamp was also deliberately removed from the screenshot,
not that i'm saying the betas of it don't exist, just that the screen above seems
odd indeed.

Hmm, where is the feedback button? Why is the build date gone? And how do you get screenshots of desktops on 500x375 assuming you're using Print screen button?

This is a odd screenshot, and if the build number is 2600, what's the minor build number? (for example, 3790.1212 for Longhorn 3790)

..another odd thing. No way to find out, because there is no winver.

Well, the strangest thing is why they felt the need to rub that information out: The build tag displayed on the desktop would correspond with an actual XP Build, rather than an 'FLP' Build. The most interesting thing in that screenshot is that it is XP SP2 RTM. In the final build, it has all the hotfixes from SP2 to it's release integrated into it, giving a much higher minor build number (I have the build number of the final at 5.1.2600.2907, taken from the files iirc, XP SP2 RTM was 5.1.2600.2180 of course)

The problem with disproving/proving any Eiger builds is that they are just XP Embedded builds, placed in a special WinPE/WIM-based Setup (using the Longhorn Build 4088 format if it's files are anything to go by).
Any proof would have to come from the setup system really.
