Builds that I have tried[edit | edit source]

This is sorted by the compile date, so older builds appear early on the list, and recent builds appear later on the list.

"Tested" builds
Version Build Demo Screenshot Tag SKU Tried Virtualized/Machine Review
Windows XP 2442
2442-demo.png
5.1.2442.1.main.010217-1630 Personal 8/14/2021 VMware Workstation 12.5.9 This build overshadows 2446 because most of the changes that were on that build were actually first introduced on this build. Other than that, it's not really a huge build. Apparently it was released on BetaWorld since time in late-2014 from what I've heard? Seems interesting...
Windows Vista 5552
WindowsVista-6.0.5552-Demo.PNG
6.0.5552.16384.vista_rc1.060822-1900 Ultimate 8/15/2021 VMware Workstation 12.5.9 Kind of interesting how XP leftovers are still everywhere yet most of the Vista UI is finalized (other than the post-OOBE screen). This is also yet another build that I installed just to replace Caveria's poorly made now-deleted screenshot. This build somehow doesn't work with the VMware 7.0 SVGA drivers, as after rebooting after installing the drivers, nothing shows up after the boot screen.
Windows Vista 6000
WindowsVista-6.0.6000.16386rtm-demo-alt-for-my-profile.png
6.0.6000.16386.vista_rtm.061101-2205 Ultimate 8/6/2021 VMware Workstation 12.5.9 Installation was slower than usual.

I don't really get the whole fuzz about this build being unstable. I rate InkBall a 10/10. Would recommend.

Windows 7 6469

6.1.6469.1.fbl_find_dev(wexbuild).071002-1531 Business 8/7/2021 VMware Workstation 12.5.9 Take a beta build of Vista Service Pack 1 and then make the taskbar taller. The end result is Windows 7 build 6469. There isn't anything interesting in this build other than the Superbar and the hidden bootscreen.
Windows 7 6519
Gamerappa-6519.png
6.1.6519.1.winmain.071220-1525 Ultimate 8/7/2021 VMware Workstation 12.5.9 Contrary to popular belief, the sidebar still exists, but it is invisible, meaning that gadgets can still be pinned to the sidebar. The "Internet/Email" icons that are on the start menu are automatically pinned on the Superbar and can be changed easily with the "Customize Start Menu" setting. It also appears that the superbar is slightly taller by a few pixels on this build when compared to 6469.
Windows 7 7068
Windows7-6.1.7068rc-Demo.png
6.1.7068.0.winmain.090321-1322 Ultimate 8/15/2021 VMware Workstation 12.5.9 This build isn't that interesting. I only tried this build out because the previous version of the demo screenshot was... quite odd to say the least (Why Caveria, why?).[1] The only thing interesting was the fact that you could place "smooth shapes" on Paint, a feature that was removed in the RTM (which build?).
