Windows Longhorn build 4042.Lab06_n.030909-1709, is probably the first Milestone 7 "Longhorn" build. It was first described by Grabberslasher in his UX.Unleaked blog on June 7, 2008.


  • This build marks the debut of the Slate theme, which was first seen publicly in the 4050 builds during PDC 2003, and the official PDC build, 4051.idx02.031001-1340.
  • a new boot screen and welcome/secure desktop screen
  • a complete upgrade to the shell, bringing a much cleaner UI and better access to new features.
  • M6 Aero Glass
  • Only the most important Sidebar tiles are present, possibly the same tiles that are present in 4051.
  • The "3D View" option in Explorer is missing, making the Panorama and Carousel view styles inaccessible.
  • StickyNotes - This application is hidden at the Windows\WinSxS folder. Unlike in the WinHEC 2004 build 4074.idx02.040425-1535, Stickies work by simply dragging an empty text file onto the StickyNote icon.
