Yesterday, I looked at the FTP log and saw:

Quote:
ADDED: Microsoft Windows Vista ("Longhorn" 6.0.4001.0) (beta)


:cool: & :OD ensues.

I get this build, and install it. This build has a awesome setup UI, but you have to get the build first. :P


Here are screenshots after install:

Login Screen: (Guess who is Master Hu! Otherwise, ignore the names.)

Default Desktop: (Surprisingly or perhaps not surprisingly, this build contains the Milestone 3 wallpaper.)
Image

New Taskbar: (Which is not new at all.)
Image

System Properties:
Image

About Windows:

XP look:

A error comes up when you change visual styles, so I had some fun with it and took a screenshot:

Lastly, my custom desktop for 4001:

PS: I think that some people would prefer build 4008 over this one. The true collectors will get this immediately.

I had an article for Longhorn Build 4001 on my blog a while back that I've since added some further information to. This build was very like 3718 though.

If you're using VMware, Use an IDE Virtual disk rather than SCSI

well, SCSI can work on Longhorn, as long as it's set to the LSI Logic one (not the SAS one, just the normal one)

In VMware select preset Windows XP Professional, and instead of 512 set 256 MB, and you will fix all BSODs.

Media Center from build 3718 can be installed on 4001 like on 3713!

Those are nice screenshots, Courage.
I am quite fond of the Welcome Screen shot in particular, displaying the time/date on the screen was a nice idea.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
This build is interesting, because it is one of the very first (if not the first) builds to have the new WIM-based Setup routine, and it was from this point on that Longhorn, for the most part, now used the new Windows Setup, with a couple of occasional exceptions (such as Build 4066, or at least the copy we have here, as well as 64-bit copies of certain builds).

From having done it before, Longhorn was a nightmare to install from the I386 Setup routine, at least it was in my experience (and no, I'm not talking about maxtorix's modifications to use I386 as a means of installing the builds themselves with custom drivers and components, the modifications themselves of which probably fix most of the problems that Longhorn had when installing from the old Windows Setup anyway; I'm talking only about the original unmodified builds), so installing using the new Windows Setup was always such a relief for me.

The new Setup routine is perhaps the only really large change in this build, as far as I know. There might be other major changes also, but none that I know if, so it would seem to me that this build was compiled mainly for the purpose of testing out the new Setup routine, unless it was already added in in an earlier build.

It's the first main build to use the WIM system (assuming you don't include a potential Build 4000, which no-one knows anything about, including if it even exists). WIMs existed in other labs before then, and there's been more than a few hints that the WIM system might even predate the Longhorn project as part of another, skunkworks MS project (WinPEs certainly do, by a few years).

Prior to the reset, the new system was exclusively x86 (no known x64 or IA64 build at all uses it), and then usually reserved for Professional SKU compiles. From what I understand from others with more builds than you or I, 4028 is the anomaly in the server builds, shipping with the WIM system, rather than 4066.

Which earlier Microsoft project used the WIM-based Setup routine (the "skunkworks MS project" that may have "predated Longhorn", which you mentioned above)?

I can't remember much about it, or even its name, but it was a whole project centered around finding exploring WinPEs and deployment systems built on it. It was very low-key though, the closest modern equivalent is Midori - we know that it's happening, and vaguely what it's about, but nothing beyond that. I certainly can't say for sure if it contained WIMs or not - only that I know WinPEs were involved and that I recall hints that WIMs probably came from the same project.

It's worth nothing that even in 4001, despite the plain UI, it's actually very far along, and beyond a few XML schema changes and swapping the compression algorithm used, the WIM format is almost the same as that which is used today in Windows 8.

That sounds like MS intended to use WIM for Neptune and XP originally.

This build's WIM is fast compared to all the other builds. (I am looking at you, 4053 and 4093....(latter being main))

This build is cool. Some programs are compatible.
I like build 3718 and this. I heard this build is unleaked.
But, this build is unique and I like it. :D
And yes, this build has DCE. (DCE disappears on 4008)
