PDC 2003 Bill Gates keynote build Discussion and Stuff

Post by Raiker »

Ok, let`s start.

There is a number of legengs in Longhorn world. One of them is build, demonstrated by Hillel Cooperman during Bill Gates keynote at PDC 2003. We are not sure yet in build tag. It`s probably 4044 (most pupular version) with full build tag 4044.private/lab06_demo.030926-1854, 4050 or 4057. So, what we know about this build:

* It was real build, not a demo like second Hillel`s session
* It had all UX Aero features, include PPA and some additional cool sidebar tiles
* It had workable and useful WinFS

So it was one of most functional Longhorn builds.

Hillel`s talk is available on Microsoft PressPass:

Now photos.
