Windows RT[edit source]
- IMO no. We already have the ia64/x64 versions of Windows XP placed onto the Windows XP page and Windows RT is mostly the same as Windows 8 with the inability to install third-party apps by default that is not from the store. BF10 (talk) 14:28, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
Fake build deletion[edit source]
- i think so. Same with file version pages like 7914, 7916, 7920 and 7926. MikeShinoda2001 (talk) 16:06, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
- Think 7992 and 7994. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:F90:40C0:8A97:6109:2A54:6B07:3B58 (talk • contribs)
Edit warring[edit source]
I locked the page for a week and restored the contents prior to the edit war so we can reach some consensus rather than endlessly reverting each other's edits with little to no explanation.
- Milestone 3 builds - First, Milestone 3 is the (first) Developer Preview, there is no separation between these stages. Branding is not representative of the development stage and sure enough, 8102 is the Milestone 3 build as confirmed by the branch it comes from. I say first DP, because there were multiple developer previews released internally, only some of which were 8102, 8250 and 8400. Regarding the heading, I think it's cleaner to remain consistent with M1/M2 rather than try to put the Developer Preview name into the heading at all costs (especially if it's not the only Developer Preview).
- Hardware compatibility section - there is an opinion that this section (and others similar in other articles) is poorly written and not really relevant. Personally I noticed that the section in this article does not talk about system requirement changes introduced by Windows 8 at all and only talks about modern devices (which is hardly our focus).

- Some developer previews were released to a subset of external users under NDA, too (OEM partners, app contest winners), like build 8175. 220.127.116.11 10:32, 26 November 2021 (UTC)
Which build introducted the final sine wave sounds?[edit source]
Windows 8 build 7680[edit source]
Windows 8 build 7680 is seen on this Windows 8 page, but there isn't an actual page of Windows 8 build 7680. It was compiled on 14 November 2009. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brennan1234567890 (talk • contribs)
What about the builds listed on the MSFT Buffet Database?[edit source]
I tried adding these builds, more specifically the ones it says were referenced in documentation, but the change got reverted. Are any of these builds acceptable for adding to the list?
- 8102.0.winmain_win8m3_d.110908-1930 is also on MSFT buffet database, but it is not a file version, it is a build that was shown in Microsoft Build 2011. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:958A:2177:A4A8:83B9 06:30, 5 July 2022 (UTC)
The following sources are also acceptable, if the build has been mentioned in more than one: Warez CD list Newsgroup discussions, comments, bug reports Screenshots of download pages File versions
