I'm sorry but there are a few more builds to be added; 5203 (unconfirmed), 5342 (leaked winmain compile) and 5487 (also unconfirmed, but screenshots exist). Tau Ceti (talk) 07:03, 14 November 2014 (GMT)

Interesting bit of trivia[edit source]

Did you know that for some time after the Longhorn development reset the project was known as Omega-13? This is a reference to the film Galaxy Quest (better known for the line 'Never give up, never surrender!') and its resetting device, in reflection of the fact that Microsoft was going to reset their project.

Thank you! I can't believe it! The first I will do is to rewrite the description as it is taken from BetaArchive wiki. --Tau Ceti (talk) 06:11, 18 November 2014 (GMT)

Build 4074 availability[edit source]

Is build 4074 really the only build available from Microsoft in that time? Source? --Yue Ling (talk) 06:18, 26 March 2019 (UTC) Yue Ling (talk) 06:18, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

It's not, 4051 was just as "public" as 4074 was. I've updated the article to reflect this. Hounsell (talk) 16:44, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

Windows Starter 2007[edit source]

In Windows Vista builds 53xx, at the Microsoft Pre-Release Software License Terms, Windows Vista Starter are labelled as "Windows Starter 2007 Beta 1". Do you have an idea why this was labelled like that? --Spyonclear (talk) 16:54, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Opiniona on Vista[edit source]

So I think Vista wasn't the best but it was not the worst, I think if Vista was released in 2011 maybe, it would had been a huge success, releasing Longhorn in 2003 based on the Server 2003 codebase, 7 released in 2007, a version in 2009 and then Vista in 2011 Dieguito0512 (talk) 14:45, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

"releasing Longhorn in 2003" "Vista in 2011" you do realize that Longhorn still would've been Vista, reset or not? ChanceManRox (talk) 14:56, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Yes, but my point was that in 2011, computers of that era would have been capable enough to run Vista without breaking much of a sweat Dieguito0512 (talk) 14:41, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
