Did you know...
- ...that Windows XP has been supported in various forms for almost 18 years, which is the longest compared to any other version of Microsoft Windows?
- ...that Windows Server 2003 build 2462 includes login banners for a Personal edition of Windows 2000?
- ...that Windows 95 build 90c has a mention to Windows 94 which could suggest that Chicago was planned to be called Windows 94 in the first part of 1994 and could've been released in 1994?
- ...that the Windows XP team created a decoy theme called Mallard to hide the fact they were secretly working on Luna?
- ...that Paint was once on the second disk of Windows 1.0 Alpha Release but later deleted by either Microsoft or the owner for unknown reasons?
Featured articleWindows Neptune build 5111.1 is a build of Windows Neptune. As of 2020, it is the only leaked build of Windows Neptune. It's also known as "Microsoft Neptune Developer Release" and was sent to developers on 1999-12-27. Much of the branding (including Winver) still says "Windows 2000". Although many files have the version "5.50.5111.1", and this is even the true version in the kernel, the kernel actually reports "5.00.5111.1" to match the subsystem version in its own PE header.
It includes the Activity Centers, a new login interface and user management application, an early version of Internet Explorer 5.5, as well as the new Help Center and AutoUpdate from Windows ME and several other improvements. It's configured to hibernate rather than shut down by default.
For an even better editing experience, BetaWiki now has VisualEditor, a WYSIWYG editor! Using it should be pretty straightforward, but as pages have to be internally converted for it to work, it may not reflect some formatting well. While generic preview authenticity issues are expected, if you see anything worse happening, hit any of the admins and we will try to do something about it.
P.S. We left up an option to completely disable it in your user preferences should you not like it.
