Just came across this screenshot from AeroXP's build list. A newer 6001 build of the server, compile date 08th of March 2007. Approximately 1 month newer than the last released beta...

Why have they been on Build 6001 for so long, usually the build number increases nearly every day doesn't it? I wonder when the public beta is coming, it's been rumoured to be soon for ages.

Don't know, wonder that build number beta 3 (the public beta (?)) will have. 6001 is still in the beta 2 fork.

Well, I don't dive into MS' development regularly and thus I only found this screenshot today. :wink:

I believe that MS is compiling all servers build after RTM as 6001.
The number tells nothing except that it makes ur think its the same build, maybe its an strategy to mess people up or something.

I could make an estimate that the screenshot is about the 100th compiled 6001 since microsoft on average, compiles a build every day. The last build release was 16461, 77 builds from 16384. Add 30 builds for a month which comes up to be around 100 to 110 builds.

Microsoft may also be releasing beta 3 was 6001.

There'll be a public beta, I am quite confident this will happen, as soon as (in beta 3?) the final name is chosen and it's feature-complete.

So far, the Longhorn Server builds haven't been that bad, ran pretty well (way better than Vista on the same box), I've had a little hick-up with one of the later ones (I believe it was 6001.16406, but I'm not sure anymore), but other than that, not that bad, as already said. The optics are pretty pleasing (in my eyes), all classic Windows 2000 look&feel.
