Windows XP build 2498 is a build of Windows XP. This build is no different from the previous build, but it was leaked as a Personal SKU release. The Personal SKU now starts to include mentions of Home Edition, including boot screen changes and the banners to now say Home Edition. However, the Personal SKU also has no default background, and the Windows XP background still says Professional.
Under the Personal SKU, the default user is "Owner" instead of Administrator on Professional installs.
