Interestingly, this build does not have a build number, unlike both earlier and later builds. Instead, Winver displays "Version VERSION" in place of the actual version number. It is speculated this build was rushed to completion so it was ready in time for the show, which could be the reason for the lack of a build number and MIPS port.

Windows Aero in Windows 7

Windows Aero is a transparent Windows visual style used from Longhorn M6 to Windows 7 (window transparency was removed in 8). The first build to have working Aero is Windows Longhorn build 4039, and the last build to use Aero (with window transparency) is Windows 8 build 8424. In Windows Longhorn, Aero effects relied on the Desktop Composition Engine (or Desktop Window Manager in newer builds), which only worked in a few builds such as 4039, 4066, and 4074. In Windows Vista and 7, it relies on a WDDM driver due to the use of hardware acceleration, otherwise the Windows Basic theme would be used. This requirement was dropped since at least Windows 8 build 7927 with the introduction of a software rendering fallback to the Desktop Window Manager.
