This will eventually be the last build to use the wallpaper from Build 7989.

Starting with Build 8008, a new wallpaper was introduced there, that's why I said this build is probably the last one to have the wallpaper from Build 7989.

Unlike Build 7989 though, this build introduces the BootIM feature which will be seen in later operating systems.
