Windows 95 build 216 is the earliest leaked Beta 2 build of Windows 95, leaked in 2010-05 on BetaArchive. The Start menu, close, minimize/maximize and help buttons, as well as the boot screen and command prompt branding were slightly modified. These minor changes carried over to the RTM release of Windows 95.

It is also one of the first builds to have a timebomb, which is activated by IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS. Once activated, it will display a message saying the pre-evaluation period has expired. Windows will then not boot until it's reinstalled with the correct BIOS date set.
