Longhorn
Recently I have been browsing around a lot, on the hunt of interesting Longhorn goodies on the web (docs, videos, images.. you name it).
Today I found a video on Channel 9 in which a developer, Joe Marina, tells us why he loves Avalon's markup language XAML so much.
What makes this video worth the watch is that this developer is using (dogfooding) a Longhorn build. Since the video was shot at the 27th of July, I dare to say this build is in the 408X range. Poor dev, running this completely brokenhorn version of longhorn *hehe* . Even back then, this version couldn't have been much and was (and is) certainly not suited for everyday usage ^^

Well, he could be running 4074 with the newer 408x wallpaper, but that's very unlikely. It should be around build 4085-4089 as 4088_lab02 was compiled in this month. Also, for all of 4093's faults, it had it's plus points. 408x had all of the faults and none of the pluses.

I am guessing that it is 4084-4089 if the version is in the 408x range and it is brokenhorn.

I miss those large titlebars. But I must say that they seem to have been somewhat redundant because of the breadcrumbs in the address bar.

Very cool, thanks for the video. I'd say it's in the 408x range (as other people said) but it can't be 4083 as 4083 has no wallpaper. So 4084-4089 then. But as always, it could just be poor video quality and/or windows overlapping useful content that cause me to misjudge...

Poor developer.
Nothing works in those 408x builds.

The sidebar is resizeable so I'm not sure if that's a good reason to rule out 4084? Also note, that while this build is probably indeed in the 408X range, it's very hard to pinpoint which exact build it is. The developer we see in the video is from another lab than the build we have from that period. The various labs could drift pretty far from each other build number wise.
