Changes[edit | edit source]

  • The Homestead and Metallic themes are now called Olive Green and Silver respectively which persists in the RTM.
  • The OOBE font for the speech of the question mark is now Arial instead of Comic Sans.
  • The Drumkit Test MIDI file is included starting with this build. It would be later removed in build 2520.
  • The default wallpaper has been changed from Bliss to Windows XP Professional until this change was reverted in build 2535.
    • This is also the first build to have the final version of XP's branding wallpaper. It replaced the previous one seen since build 2465.[1]
  • The copyright dates are now shown in the lower-left corner of the winver banner as opposed to "Version 2002" seen in previous builds.
  • The Windows XP sounds are now used by default instead of the ones used by Windows 2000 and are now compressed unlike build 2481.
  • The illustration images for the new and classic Start menu in the taskbar properties has been changed. This remained until build 2600.3180.
