Windows 8 build 7900

Build of Windows 8
OS familyWindows NT
Version number6.2
Build number7900

Windows 8 build 7900 is a build of Windows 8. It was shown running on a PandaBoard using Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 ARM-based SoC at CES 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA to demonstrate the capabilities of the then-evolving ARM32 architecture, along with builds 7867 and 7893.[1][2]

As this build's lab isn't working on new features, but on ARM compatibility, there are only minor changes in the user interface: the window title is centered instead of being aligned to the left, the caption buttons are slightly bigger than in Windows 7, the branding has been changed to "Microsoft Pre-Release Windows Operating System", and an Internet Explorer 9 build is used instead of IE 8 RTM.

Like build 7893, the characteristic User Tile seen in builds 7788 through 7899 isn't present here or is disabled. The desktop background also utilizes the one seen in the RTM build of Windows 7 in place of the blue-green gradient Milestone 1 wallpaper that was used since build 7777.
