Unlike all other compiles of this build, which contain "Whistler Personal" bitmaps, MSGINA.DLL in the IA-64 version includes "Windows 2000 Personal 64-Bit" login banners based off the Autorun header bitmap from the Windows 2000 Professional RTM disc. This is particularly interesting, since it wasn't planned for Windows 2000 to have an edition targeted at home customers, who at the time tended to be Windows 9x users. Instead, antitrust documents from February 1998 mention Windows Neptune as the successor to both Windows 2000 (then still referred to as NT5) and Windows 98.
