However, out of the several language variants, only the Korean version is currently available. A Simplified Chinese version alongside with a German version are known to exist, although they have since been lost.

Apps that are pinned to the Start menu cannot be removed, even if the user attempts to remove them via right clicking the icon and selecting "Remove from This List".
Login screen[edit | edit source]
If the user upgrades to this build, the login screen loads the Arial font instead of the correct font (Trebuchet MS) on the first boot. It will load the correct font upon rebooting the system.
