Go to the Public Servers section forum. There you can find a few Longhorn builds to download from Rapidshare. When you get into Advanced Members group, then you will have full access to BA servers and a rest of Longhorn builds.

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

You don't have so much to choose. But from there maybe 4039 M6. If anyone else have a better recomendation...

In this thread you can have a small overview over all Longhorn Builds including many opinions from other users:
http://betaarchive.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7241

The earliest builds are the most stable builds. I used 4008 (but without Aero!) for the most time and it worked fine for me. 4074 & 4093 has included many eye candy (and Aero), but it's full with annoying issues.
In the end you have to find out by yourself what build is working the best for you. :)

Ok, I decided, that I will try builds: 3718,4008,4039,4074,4093 on virtual machine.

I wouldn't bother with build 4008.

Just enable the 'new taskbar' in build 3718 by right clicking on the sidebar.

I also recommend to try 3683. If you're quite lucky, you may see a working avalon-based Personalization applet

I downloaded build 4074 & try install it on VirtualBox. Why during the instalation there is no mouse cursor?

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

Thats just a thing with 4074, some people get it, I don't.
Your not going to see Aero in Virtualbox, or any other Virtualisation program for that matter.

All the time he stands on the hardware detection. Probably I install this build on the second partition.

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

Also, it would be difficult to get Aero, if you have modern video-adapter. I was succeed in getting DWM/DCE working only in 3718 and 4039

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

Ok, tommorow I install build 3718, later 4039 and at the end 4074.

PS.:Which DirectX is supporting by Longhorn?

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

Longhorn 3718 is very stable but without Aero(only ugly DCE)
Longhorn 4039 is VERY unstable so don't even try.
My favorite is 4028 but may things are broken including Aero so that build isn't interesting for you

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

I became interested this build 4028. This build is only server build before resert of Longhorn works. He is cut, as x64 builds. From what are you say I test builds: 3718 & 4074.

Longhorn 4028 is x32 build leaked only(I Think) ... Longhorn build 4029 is not too stable and is quite same as 4028, but it si not server build. Build 4029 is also good build. If you want o try phodeo - Phodeo is in builds 4039 and 4066. Aero is in builds 4066,4074,(4093 ?). Longhorn build 4028 works fine for me, I recommend builds 4028 and 4029 to try ...

DWM is in build 4093, it is just broken. If I recall correctly, it can be fixed with files from 4074.

Post subject:  Re: I'm searching a Longhorn build.

I installed Windows Longhorn Build 3718. This build is very stable, but it is only XP + new skin & sidebar. He doesn't have Aero, but only DCE effects, for this reason this build is out. In the nearest time I'm planning install the builds 4029,4039,4074 & 4093.

It can't. I recall correctly, the Longhorn 08 team and the Longhorn Refined team (Remember that project based on 4093 that lasted all of a few weeks?) tried fixing it with 4074 files, but the builds were just a little too different for it to work.. I'm yet to see a successful attempt to get DWM working on 4093. 4093 is also one of the most buggy and broken builds of Longhorn I've had the displeasure to test.

Yes.Generally Build 3718 is cool, completely as XP.Unfortunately, has little 3D effects.
I tested Build 4039. He is good build, some unstable, but for me may be.
Later I will try Build 4074.

Good luck with this Build. :)

I had so many issues like driver problems, the memory leak, crashes,... with this build.

4028 and 4029 contains Phodeo too.
You have to merge next regfile:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"Carousel"=dword:00000001
"LVSpy"=dword:00000001
"Panorama"=dword:00000001

Then you have to relogin in OS. After it you can choose Carousel View for icons - this action will enable 3D view of icons, and next pick Panorama view.
And about 4066, I found that build very slow for me
