Did you know...
  • ...that Windows Server 2003 build 2462 includes login banners for a Personal edition of Windows 2000?
  • ...that there are multiple Windows Longhorn builds with the same build number and lab, which are distinguished only by compile date?
  • ...that in Windows Longhorn build 4042 (Lab06_n) there are folders both with the XP-style 'My' name and the Vista-style name which dropped the 'My'?
  • ....that there was at least one Windows 7 build which had an E SKU (removing IE), which was never included in RTM?
  • ...that there was a test for Windows NT 3.5x to see if it could use the Windows 95 shell, namely NewShell/Technology Preview?

Windows Vista build 3790.1232
Windows Vista build 3790.1232 is the first "Longhorn" build compiled after the development reset. Basically, it is a rebranded Windows Server 2003 SP1 beta. There is no evidence that this is a "Longhorn" build except for references in the End-User License Agreement. It was described by Grabberslasher on his UX.Unleaked blog on 2008-05-02. Unlike other post-reset builds, this build does not use BOOTMGR and can still boot without ACPI.

This build is not functionally a Longhorn build, but since it has the Longhorn EULA (End User License Agreement), it was still distributed as a Longhorn build and was intended to be tested as such.
