Kinda pointless thread I know, but check this:

Found that when messing around with my Lumia 625.

And yes, as with any other Windows PE the organization and owner are both Microsoft :P

I wonder if the app is just interpreting the value wrong?

I sideloaded some other similar Registry Editor and it reported the same value, so I don't think so.

Or could it be that WP8 is really based on Longhorn PE?

I'm Bill and I tell my team to make an impossible ARM port for Longhorn PE (5 years ago)

5 years later: I just used Longhorn PE to compile some arm thingy. Project cancelled. XD

How in the world did this even happen.... How can Longhorn PE even turn into a permanent phone OS in the first place?

LOL!!!!!!!!! IT SHOULD BE NOTHING CLOSE TO LONGHORN WINDOWS PE!!!

Could Longhorn be a codename for Windows Phone 8? Along with pre-reset Vista?

Actually, Windows(TM) Codename "Longhorn" Preinstallation Environment is, also the ProductName for WinPE.
So, in theory, WP8 could be the WinPhone API and stuff running on an ARM compile of WinPE.

All WinPE versions since Longhorn 5048 are called "Longhorn Pre-Installation Environment". So, we can deduce which Windows Phone is based on WinPE win 8. It's make sense, ince it is lighter.

So, Windows Phone 8 could have been based on Windows Longhorn PE? I don't get it.

No. Have you checked the earlier posts? Also, Longhorn is over 7 years old by now. Based on something that is a year away from end of support.

It isn't really. It's just a bit funny more than anything.

Weird, I think it's the app who print that information and it's not in the registry :/

Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows and after we will have Midori or an another kernel... I'm sure.

So on this new kernel "classic win32 x86 software" can't be used but with some trick, we can use WinRT software on this new kernel ?

It is in the registry. Try mounting a WP registry hive and see for yourself.

Wrong. Screenshot from Windows 8.1 PE:

EDIT: So Windows Phone was based on SP1 PE BETA (by the build number). In my opinion M$ just didnt changed something that is never shown to user. They will not do it only for a small community of nerds who can install registry editors :D

Yes, but I would not have expected to see it in a Windows Phone device.
