I was pretty obsessive about making these boot and install back in the day, but there are a few I never got around to doing, and maybe one or two that I never managed to install at all. YMMV!

I hope a new generation can enjoy these like I did. :)

3790.1232 is already leaked, the others aren't. Sounds really promising! I am really excited!!
It has just been the end of January 2020, and we already got 50 builds?

I believe only Pro leaked. I’m including the rest of the editions and bits I had, since it was a pivotal point for the Longhorn project.

Thanks for uploading these! They are being checked out and documented as we speak :). You did blow the surprise though as I had some fun plans for these, but the cat is out of the bag, so let's get these onto the FTP as soon as they are checked! I bet these will keep some members busy for a while ;).

Thanks again!

There are a bunch of later builds that I can no longer remember the details of where they came from or who has them or wants to keep them safe. If I can corral a few old sources, I might be able to add a few more. Maybe some of them have already leaked over the years, I'm not sure. No guarantee on any of the below though (plus, it's no longer 'real' Longhorn, so it's far less interesting).

The folders I still have on my Drobo marked as 'unreleased' are:

Code: Select all

6.0.5098.winmain_beta1.050628-1740
6.0.5356.winmain.060330-1450
6.0.5466.vbl_media_ehome.060627-2030
6.0.5487.0.winmain.060726-1810
6.0.5492.winmain.060802-1900
6.0.5520.16384.vista_rc1.060812-2235
6.0.5552.16284.winmain_rc1.060822-1900
6.0.5808.16384.vista_rtm.061012-1900

Awesome! Thank you for leaking these; I've wanted to try 5001 for years. If you can release the others like 5098 that would be appreciated too.

Nice! Hey, did I ever send you that 4089 build? That's yet another I unfortunately lost. If you happen to have/find it, send it on up as well!

I don't see it, so I'm guessing not. Sadly might be lost to time :(

Thank you so much!!! It'll be exciting to fill in the cracks where we lack knowledge of the development process!!

Oh thank you very much grabberslasher!
The three builds I had always wanted to see: 4030.lab06- first known implementation of the 403x series plex. Maybe that plex style could have begun in 402x series?
4040.lab04 & 4042.main- only builds with Xp style plex capable of DCE frames.

Oh my, and 4031.lab07 server? Another pre-reset server build!

Again thank you very much grabberslasher.

Now if only I had something to run this on... Sadly, I have only chrome OS.
I would write some funny comment down here, but I can't be bothered. :P
