We're alive ;)

What's the build number? Even if we already have the build on the FTP, it probably isn't an MDF dump, so you could still improve upon the current release we have, assuming it isn't already an MDF dump.

MSDN disks were disks sent out to people on the Microsoft Developer Network. They had developer copies of software, development tools, etc. We probably already have most of them dumped, but you can always do a search in the FTP database for the disks you have to see if we've got them or not.
My chosen virtual machine programs:
Windows 9x+, Intel macOS: VMware Workstation Pro 16
Older than 9x: PCEm
PPC Mac OS: QEMU

Current Projects: Installing every beta build of Windows Me in VMware (viewtopic.php?p=468094#p468094)
Past Projects: Installing every beta build of Windows XP, Longhorn, Vista, and Windows 7 in VMware (https://www.betaarchive.com/wiki/index. ... nonymous74)

You don't have to submit a beta to get access to the archive, you can submit any properly dumped software that follows the guidelines here. I believe a properly dumped beta should count for that, but mrpijey will have to confirm.

Here is the page on contributions which will tell you everything you need to know: https://www.betaarchive.com/contributions.php

This community is very much alive. There isn't as much posting activity as there once was mainly because there is no longer an incentive to post as much as there was prior to the contributions requirement change in 2014, and also because the post-Windows 10 release practices has caused some people to no longer consider the beta scene as interesting as it previously was.

The FTP upload activity however is in full-gear, I think.
