What the heck was Microsoft's objective with build 4083? (Longhorn)?

You can't do anything! No way to install drivers for hardware, alot of functions were missing. Now I can see why they would want to test Longhorn with the x64 bit architecture in a minimalist environment (to test core functionality), but there were builds of 4051 and 4074 which were 64bit and they weren't missing features like that. So was was Microsoft trying to accomplish here?

Read this blog and you'll figure out what the purpose was.
They wanted to abandon as many features as possible (even the wallpaper was dropped) to try to fix all the memory leaks in Longhorn until they finally realized in 4093 that it was impossible and they started again from the scratch

Ya know, that thought had crossed my mind, however 4093 was so full of crap, I thought there were other reasons.

"What the heck was Microsoft's objective with build 4083? (Longhorn)?"

That was my question for this topic. What does creating a wallpaper have to do with it? You made another topic just for that wallpaper you made, right?

Wildeye your 11 and you already have a bad name over the internet, especially now with your stealing other peoples nicks (ie ToxicBubbles) this causes other people on the internet/forums/irc etc to get a bad name and to be banned from forums etc.

I suggest you take a break for a while.

Very off-topic, looks like we have another sonicridersuser here...

Back-on, i wish i could test this (its x64 only) so i guess because x64 were almost non-existent that it was just a test to get the kernel right.

No because WildEye doesn't speak legitimate Engrish. Instead he just does stupid things like steal others' nicknames or go off topic for no reason. He's done it on many forums and has been banned several times because of his kiddie-ness.

Please, no more criticism of other members on the forum as it makes a bad atmosphere - if you have a legitimate disagreement with someone please take it up with them privately or with one of the staff :)
