Development[edit source]

A lot of this section feels questionable and subjective. Perhaps it should be revised.--Overdoze (talk) 22:41, 28 October 2018 (GMT)

If anyone sees the new build edit.[edit source]

For Windows builds that don't have a clear build number designation we try to use the most friendly page name, which can be the name of the magazine where screenshots appeared, name of the event where it has been demonstrated or other easily memorable hint. Your proposal does try to introduce some consistency to the names, which is ones, however the builds are usually referred to by the names of the magazine/events. Not to mention, the "Byte" build can't possibly be from 1983-12, because that'd mean it would be made after the COMDEX build, which unlike the Byte build is more similarly looking to the final version. The 1984-04 build can't be from 1984-04-09 specifically as the title bar seems to have been set to display the current date and time. The actual "watermark" is shown in the Monthly ASCII screenshots and doesn't seem to include any time information. --AlphaBeta (talk) 11:28, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Indeed, it's impossible to know the exact date for most of these builds (system date is irrelevant here, as AlphaBeta said). So until any further evidence is found, I recommend we stick to the current names (magazines etc.).--Overdoze (talk) 12:24, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
OK, Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.102.242.114 (talkcontribs)
