I think that build doesn't exist, first of all, reliability of wikipedia. Before April 2014, Development in the document Windows 98 in wikipedia said 669 exists.
Second, the build number. Nashville also have version 4.10 kernel. At least, Nashville build number may start at 95* (not 950 and 951) or 960.
Third, presence of any references or documents of this build. Does Anyone have this[these]?

There is absolutely no proof whether this build exists or not. I'd say either a fork of some sort, or a fake. It is also possibly a mistyping of 4.10.999 (codenamed Nashville).

I tend to agree. With no conclusive evidence and a bizarre build number, this is highly unlikely to exist.

That is assuming Build numbers can't overlap. Something which is proven false by the fact we have 95 OSR and 98 Builds in the same range (11xx).

In any case, there is no evidence for the evidence of 669. It was originally mentioned in Gunsamaster's checklist, and from there it spread. Safe to remove from Wikipedia because there's no sources to back up the existence of this Build.
