Did you know...
- That LogonUI was first introduced in Windows Neptune build 5111 as a replacement for the classic logon prompt? The classic logon prompt would be completely removed in Windows Vista build 5098 as LogonUI became mandatory.
- That the background music that plays during the OOBE of Windows XP is called title.wma?

- That Windows 8 build 8102 includes sample Metro apps which were not included in later builds of Windows 8?
- That the first build to include HomeGroup was Windows 7 build 6519?
- That Windows Home Server build 1424 contains a typo on the version name on the watermark where it is mistakenly identified as "Windows Windows Home Server" (with two instances of "Windows" instead of one) instead of Windows Home Server?
Favorites[edit | edit source]
My favorite Operating Systems: Windows 7, Windows 10, and Windows XP. (7 and XP were the ones I used a lot when I was young and are still great to this very day.)
My least favorite Operating Systems: Windows 8/8.1 and Windows Vista. (Windows 8 was the worst OS because It was very poorly optimized for computers without touchscreens while Windows Vista was kind of bad because even though the visuals of the OS were really cool, it is very slow on low to mid-end computers because of its high memory requirements.)
My favorite web browser: Microsoft Edge (Better than Internet Explorer.)
My favorite Windows Wallpapers: The Windows 7 Harmony desktop wallpaper, The Windows Vista Aurora desktop wallpaper, The 2015 version of the Windows 10 Hero Wallpaper and The Windows XP Bliss desktop wallpaper. (These wallpapers are the best ever!)
My least favorite Windows Wallpapers: The Windows 11 desktop wallpaper, the desktop wallpapers from Windows 8/8.1 and the 2019 version of the Windows 10 Hero Wallpaper. (These wallpapers were not the best compared to previous Windows desktop wallpapers.)
My favorite Windows logos: Both the 2006 and the 2001 Windows logos. (I wish that Microsoft still used the Windows flag from XP, Vista and 7.)
My least favorite Windows logos: Both the 2021 and 2012 Windows logos. (I really don't like these logos because they are very simplistic and don't visually represent the advanced graphic capabilities of Microsoft Windows.)
My favorite Windows visual styles: Windows Aero and Luna. (These were the best looking visual themes from Microsoft!)
My least favorite Windows visual styles: The flat Aero theme in Windows 8 and later. (I wish that they kept the Aero theme from Windows Vista and Windows 7.)
My favorite Tech YouTube Channels: Michael MJD, Nobel Tech and Windows on Windows.
