My opinions on LONGHORN!!!

Opinions are taken only from leaked builds.

Milestone 3

Build 3683 - Not much changed XP version with massive new features. Good build to use with XP. Sidebar is here. Plex is added for this build. Leaked first time on 2002-10-20 and second on 2002-11-19 as Profesional.

Build 3706 - Slightly slower than Build 3683 but it's too stable. Darker Plex is here. Leaked on 2006-05-22 as Profesional.

Build 3713 - Great tutorial for Tablet PC Edition! Not much changed from 3706 and 3718. Leaked on 2011-04-26 as Profesional.

Build 3718 - Not much different than build 3706 and 3713. Tablet PC Edition is dropped. Leaked on 2004-04-30 as Profesional.

Milestone 4

Build 4001 - The new setup and clean installing and best build for me. Media Center Edition is dropped and Professional only lefts until Windows Vista beta era. Leaked on 2013-01-15 as Profesional.

Build 4008 - Again updated setup, new wallpaper, Luna, Plex and Classic are still there. Updated Screen Saver, but not boot screen. Lekaed on 2003-02-28 as Profesional.

Build 4011 - Pain to hard install the build with missing files. Updated bootscreen. I used repack. Also I installed with 4008 files, but changed install.wim. Leaked on 2006-07-21 as Profesional.

Milestone 5

Build 4015 - New style logging on and new wallpaper with milestone 5. Taskbar can't be changed to luna now, if sidebar is running. At this point builds start being unstable. Leaked on 2003-04-25 as Profesional.

Build 4020 - Great build, removes XP from watermark and skips an OOBE. DCE is broken. Leaked on 2018-12-04 as Professional.

Build 4029 - Again new style logging on and large preview image the best feature of the build. Leaked on 2003-09-23 as Profesional.

Build 4028 - Server version of build 4029 with clock from 4033. Bliss from Windows XP is here, like with 4066.

Milestone 6

Build 4032 - Removes clock if running sidebar and DCE works on it and updates Plex. Leaked on 2018-12-04 as Professional.

Build 4033 - Updated Plex and new wallpaper with M6.

Build 4039 - Updated setup and slightly updated plex. Aero is added. Leaked on 2007-08-22 as Profesional.

Build 4042 - New bootscreen, new wallpaper, new logging on screen and Plex is replaced by Slate without message Start. Aero is still here. Slightly updated setup. Endless boot if running on VMware so use Longhorn Packet. Leaked on 2011-04-25 as Profesional.

Milestone 7

Build 4051 - New setup, again new logging on screen Windows logo and everything black with white message. Some changes from build 4042. This build is less popular than 4074. Leaked in 2003-10-20 as Profesional.

Build 4053 - Almost like 4051 with fixed network. Leaked on 2004-03-01 as Professional.

Build 4066 - The server version of build 4074. Jade is here, most of XP icons were changed to actual Longhorn icons. This and 4028 are only the builds of Longhorn to include wallpaper Bliss from Windows XP from build 4028. Leaked on 2008-12-20 as Professional.

Build 4074 - A very popular build and fan-made scenes. A newest and only wallpaper loved by users and make some changes. This build is very stable to use. Jade is here again, Slate, Luna and Classic were keep. Aero is here for the best! No creation new folders! Leaked in 2004-05 as Professional.

Build 4083 - The build is only in 64-bit edition. Sidebar is absent on this build, Jade, Slate, Luna but not Classic with some missing files to use. Empty build. WordPad is broken for this build with 4084. Leaked in 2004-11-10 as Professional.

Build 4084 - A new wallpaper used to until reset code on Longhorn. This build can't be upgrade from pervious build. Empty build, like in 4083. The bug is same with 4083, Classic with missing files. Leaked on 2011-10 as Professional.

Build 4088 - Not much changed from build 4084, new starting setup screen and too many bugs is here for example Safe Mode is complety broken and gives us BSOD. WordPad interface is fixed. The bug is same with 4083 and 4084, Classic with missing files. Leaked on 2015-01-13 as Professional.

Build 4093 - The hell of classic Longhorn. Early anytime upgrade, Movie Maker 3.0 and some changes. This very unstable build and takes a long time to install while upgrading with massive number of errors after setup or stuck at upgrading forever. Not for me, if I use VMware Player. In early Anytime upgrade says Professional is Home Edition of Longhorn, so it's not true in folder WINDOWS/Web/Wallpapers contains a wallpaper from Windows XP Professional. All visual styles were keep with fixed Windows Classic. A new interface of Windows Media Player. Leaked on 2006-08-28 as Professional.

Pre-Beta 1

Build 3790.1232 - The build is same like Windows XP. Also I must have a fixed version of AntiWPA or I use Safe Mode forever. Finally installed but only Windows Classic but not Luna. I've fixed this few days later. Leaked on 2011-08-14 as Professional.

Build 5048 - Too many features from Longhorn dropped from this build, new bootscreen and early Aero. RSOD is here for failing boot this build. Luna and Windows Classic were keep. Logging screen from Windows XP. New wallpaper is here. For BetaWiki it's first build for Windows Vista. 50 files per folder, but it's not bad, just ignore it! Leaked on 2005-04-24 as Professional.

Beta 1

Build 5112 - Aero is updated with new watermark Windows Vista no longer Longhorn, but is still here on winver. Luna is removed by Aero and Windows Classic is still here. New wallpaper is here again. Released on 2005-07-27 as Professional.

Unfortunately, I don't make further opinions, due to my busy time.

My virtual machines are VMware Player (often), VirtualBox (sometimes) and Microsoft Virtual PC (NT 5.0 (2000) Whister (XP) only).

About more

Here's placement of my best virtual machines to run Windows and it's builds. (unfortunately, all are uninstalled (expect Virtual PC) due to sometimes lost to the Internet connection and a chance of BSOD)

1st - VMware family - the best emulator for me, running Windows! Build 2202 of Whistler runs on it! It can't run Windows XP builds 2211-2430.

2nd - Microsoft Virtual PC - good for use Windows Whistler builds 2211-2430. Can't upgrade to 2474 and later if upgrading in earlier versions of Whistler and first installed OS was Windows 2000 and gives a BSOD.

3rd - VirtualBox - sometimes for VHD only builds. For build 4028 or build 7225.

4th - QEMU - good emulator of MacOS. Sometimes it's pain to install these builds.

5th - Hyper-V - sometimes hard to learn and get it.

6th - PCem family - one word: TERRIBLE

Currently I use VMware Workstation 10 (formerly 9) for Windows Server 2016 which was completed in August 29, 2019.

VMware Workstation 10.0.7 (2015-07-02) is the last version to support 32-bit operating systems.

I use PrtSc and Alt + PrtSc to make screenshots, but sometimes I use Bandicam if I cannot to make a screenshot in the Windows or other place, now today it's much better to make window screenshot, because of helpful tools. I use also Paint.NET for Windows XP, Vista, 7 or early 8, but hardly ever, because transpert is not required to make proper crops.
