Windows Vista build 5221 (vbl_ux_dev_checkin_gamesux) is a pre-Beta 2 build of Windows Vista. This build was used as concept art in one of Microsoft's presentations, and was also shown off in several Parental Controls demonstrations at PDC 2005.[1] A screenshot of this build was accidentally posted to Microsoft's website, and was subsequently archived by Polish website WinBeta.pl before it was taken down.[2]

This is the earliest known build to include the start menu used in build 5252 onwards, alongside with the start orb and darker taskbar seen in other vbl_ux_dev_checkin builds.
