if you install the MediaCenter in one of the 3xxx Builds of Longhorn you also see the BootScreen with Freestyle. It is also the name of the entry in the "Add Windows-features-dialog"

Why would you ask a question, only to answer it yourself 14 minutes later.

Freestyle was the codename of the Media Center 2003 version, some developer probably forgot to remove these resources..... If you install the Media Center components of Lonfgorn build 3683/3706 the bootscreen also says Freestyle...
