Did you know...
- ...that Windows XP build 2223 had commented out code in its Business theme file that would allow the user to configure different colors based on its settings?
- ...that Apple has officially released several developer releases of what would later become Mac OS X for the x86 architecture as a part of its NeXT legacy, and secretly continued to maintain the port until Tiger?
- ...that Windows Longhorn build 3683 has a debug flag for
winnt.exe, "/I_am_TedM", in order to bypass the error to run the DOS-based setup in the Command Prompt?
- ...that some builds of Windows 98 and Windows 2000 contained a Show Desktop button on the taskbar, which would be scrapped later until Windows 7 build 6608?
- ...that no build of Windows Vista (including pre-reset) actually used or even included the widespread Longhorn sound scheme?
