Screenshots should be "clean" (no extraneous borders outside the video area) and scaled to their true size. If possible, use the Windows screenshot feature (<kbd>Print Screen</kbd> key, Snipping Tool) to take pictures of the desktop, or use the screenshot feature if using a hypervisor/emulator. For "Full Screen" shots, if a cursor is present, it should be isolated in a corner of the background if possible (to show unique features of the cursor). All screenshots should be lossless (JPEG is not acceptable and non-animated GIF is not recommended, unless the respective build is unleaked and the only available screenshots are in JPEG or GIF).

=== Article Screenshots ===
==Longhorn Build Stability==
+
[[File:CropIllustration.png|thumb|128px|right|The desktop shouldn't be visible in application screenshots.]]
*Build 3683: For a start, it's pretty stable, but still don't rely on this build as many apps will refuse to run here.
+
Each main article usually requires three components: the Desktop, the About window, and (sometimes) the Logo. In most cases, a build article only needs the first two. "Full Screen" shots (such as for the Desktop and Start Menu) should be 1024x768 in 16-bit color at minimum, unless the subject in question does not support such a video mode (for example, 1024x768 in 256 colors is fine for Windows 3.1 and early Windows 95 builds). Screenshots must not use themes, wallpapers, or other graphics that are not included with the particular operating system or application build, even if they are "Demo" screenshots. The default look and feel should be used for most screenshots; any personalization options can be reasonably demonstrated in a "Demo" screenshot in the Gallery.
*Build 3706: Unstable to use, interacting with the sidebar can cause Explorer to crash. Don't modify Slide Show or you might get in a Explorer reset loop.
+
 
*Build 3713: Fixes it's stability problems and can now run Tablet PC. Other than that it's not much different from build 3706.
+
Desktop shots should be void of any extra windows, it should represent the state of the system when it is completely idle without any running programs. In the case that the OS shows a tool or special graphic (such as a welcome screen) on boot, that is known as a "First Boot" shot, and is separate from the Desktop shot.
*Build 3718: One of the most stable builds out there, although Tablet PC is gone (and will be for most of the later builds)
+
 
*Build 4001: When they started using WIM installation, it's actually pretty stable to install. The only downside is that PCem family won't install this.
+
Each article also contains a Gallery, where other associated shots are contained. Additional full screen shots belong here, such as the "Demo" (which shows off particularly unique features of a build). The remaining shots are usually those of programs unique to a build. Those shots should be cropped to the size of the program's window (including transparency and window shadows if such effects are present). Child windows (if any) should be visible in their full area. The screenshots should be free of any watermarks, unless the respective build is unleaked and the only available screenshots are watermarked. Article screenshots should not be annotated in Paint or any other image editor, again the only exception is if there's no other screenshot available and the build is unleaked.
*Build 4008: This is where builds start to get unstable. DCE also breaks again.
 
*Build 4011: Apparently no mistakes were learned, and now WinPE is broken. Testing the i386 repack, this build is pretty stable. The WIM might be a little unstable.
 
*Build 4015: Stable if you disable processes and the sidebar. Interesting build as well thanks to new login screen.
 
*Build 4028: Good luck if you don't use VirtualBox, since apparently they hadn't learned a thing from build 4011. It's stable if it installs, at least.
 
*Build 4029: A client version of build 4029 with a fixed setup. Be sure to disable the processes or run on real hardware like PCem or it can be unstable.
 
*Build 4033: Same as above, be sure to disable the useless processes to stop the memory leaks and unstable Explorer.
 
*Build 4039: This build is a different story. 3706 stability returns even when disabling processes. At least Aero kinda works.
 
*Build 4042: New style doesn't mean good stability. It's kinda unstable but at least better than 3706 or 4039.
 
*Build 4051: Sans a few problems with hardware installation and internet, this build can run stabler than 4042.
 
*Build 4053: After reinstallation, it's kinda stable, but 4074 and 3718 is better in stability
 
*Build 4066: As with the i386 builds, it's surprisingly stable and can run better than most other builds with the Slate theme. Aero also works to some extent.
 
*Build 4074: Well known build is able to run stable and can even have working Aero.
 
*Build 4083: Very empty build, don't bother installing unless you need to install all builds. Has hardware problems, instability issues, and almost nothing left.
 
*Build 4084: Also don't bother, it's pretty empty and unstable despite having more content than 4083.
 
*Build 4088: Newest leaked build isn't interesting as it's mostly similar to 4084 feature-wise and stability-wise.
 
*Build 4093: It's actually more usable than 408x builds, tested. Be prepared for a long install if you tend to run this. It has every feature that was scrapped visible here which makes this build worth installing over the 408x builds and maybe even 4053.
 
*Build 3790.1232: Unless you know how to get past the setup, don't bother, as it's simply XP with timebomb, 0-day activation, and setup bug.
 
*Bulid 5048: Stable build in toll of nearly all of the Longhorn goodies. New Aero theme.
 
*Build 5112: Pretty stable as well, although if you are running this on a Pentium 3 or lower PC or on an emulator like Virtual PC, either be prepared for a long install or don't bother.
 
*Build 5212: Sidebar makes a return here, and this build is still reasonably stable.
 
*Build 5219: Build 5212 with less features, kinda wonky but stable too.
 
*Build 5231 and 5231.2: If on emulator, don't bother as it will either not boot to setup or otherwise be pretty slow. Otherwise it can run pretty sturdy and fine.
 
*Build 5259: Don't bother, more unstable version of build 5231. Good luck if you are planning to run the Server SKU.
 
*Build 5259.3: Fixes a few issues and it's kinda stable but wonky too.
 
*Build 5270.9: Kinda unstable or stable depending on how much this build likes your system.
 
*Build 5284: While it looks interesting at first, it's not much different from build 5270.9, although there is setup bugs that makes upgrading impossible. Also the $OEM$ folder too.

Featured article

Windows 95
Windows 95 (codenamed Chicago) is a consumer version of Windows released by Microsoft. It was designed to be the successor of Windows 3.1 and would be replaced by Windows 98. Microsoft ended support for Windows 95 on 2001-12-31.

It improved upon 16-bit Windows by introducing a hybrid 16/32-bit kernel and eliminating the need for an existing installation of MS-DOS, making it a standalone operating system (running alongside MS-DOS). Microsoft focused on improving the usability of Windows with technologies such as Plug-and-Play, long file names (VFAT), the Start Menu, an updated Desktop, Internet Explorer and Mail, built-in networking, and virtual device drivers.

Screenshots

Thanks to Foxlet for writing this!
Screenshots should be "clean" (no extraneous borders outside the video area) and scaled to their true size. If possible, use the Windows screenshot feature (Print Screen key, Snipping Tool) to take pictures of the desktop, or use the screenshot feature if using a hypervisor/emulator. For "Full Screen" shots, if a cursor is present, it should be isolated in a corner of the background if possible (to show unique features of the cursor). All screenshots should be lossless (JPEG is not acceptable and non-animated GIF is not recommended, unless the respective build is unleaked and the only available screenshots are in JPEG or GIF).

Article Screenshots

The desktop shouldn't be visible in application screenshots.

Each main article usually requires three components: the Desktop, the About window, and (sometimes) the Logo. In most cases, a build article only needs the first two. "Full Screen" shots (such as for the Desktop and Start Menu) should be 1024x768 in 16-bit color at minimum, unless the subject in question does not support such a video mode (for example, 1024x768 in 256 colors is fine for Windows 3.1 and early Windows 95 builds). Screenshots must not use themes, wallpapers, or other graphics that are not included with the particular operating system or application build, even if they are "Demo" screenshots. The default look and feel should be used for most screenshots; any personalization options can be reasonably demonstrated in a "Demo" screenshot in the Gallery.

Desktop shots should be void of any extra windows, it should represent the state of the system when it is completely idle without any running programs. In the case that the OS shows a tool or special graphic (such as a welcome screen) on boot, that is known as a "First Boot" shot, and is separate from the Desktop shot.

Each article also contains a Gallery, where other associated shots are contained. Additional full screen shots belong here, such as the "Demo" (which shows off particularly unique features of a build). The remaining shots are usually those of programs unique to a build. Those shots should be cropped to the size of the program's window (including transparency and window shadows if such effects are present). Child windows (if any) should be visible in their full area. The screenshots should be free of any watermarks, unless the respective build is unleaked and the only available screenshots are watermarked. Article screenshots should not be annotated in Paint or any other image editor, again the only exception is if there's no other screenshot available and the build is unleaked.

Compatibility

  • Apparently MS Plus! Digital Media Edition installs on Longhorn builds. Tested on build 3713 and build 4015, they both install (images of 4015 running it can be seen in my demo image gallery). MS Plus! XP crashes loading setup though.
