- ...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?
Featured articleRedpill (also abbreviated as RP) is a term adopted by Microsoft to denote feature hiding efforts. It was first spotted in build 6608, along with its counterpart Bluepill. Despite this fact, most associate Redpill with Windows 8 only. This can be attributed to Windows 7 using the term rather sparingly.
In Windows 7, Bluepill features were to be enabled through the registry. However, Windows 8 utilizes a licensing policy and an external library called
shsxs.dll, both of which are responsible for the hidden features that Redpill can provide. Over time, several applications were developed in effort to enable these hidden features with varying degrees of success.
