Thread: Microsoft Longhorn Build 4008 Has Been Leaked

  1. #1
    A newsgroup calling themselves -NoWiNBETA have posted a supposedly new build of Longhorn, build 4008. While WiNBETA claims that this build is fake, Neowin says that it is indeed real no matter what anyone says. Neowin has also posted some screenshots of the setup for this "new build" and will be posting more screenshots of the OS itself within the hour. View the setup screenshots below, and stay tuned for more screenshots! (The below screenshots are hosted on my personal webspace to take the load off of Neowin.)

    ieXbeta can not confirm this build to be real.

    The REAL WinBeta is still questioning if this longhorn is real or not. i have uploaded pics of this longhorn from sum1 on a newsgroup to my site (its geocities, so beware)

    The codename for Microsoft's newest OS.
    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I don't know. I'm not all that interested in Longhorn, because I recently got XP and I don't feel like getting another OS.

    This site has "previews" of it, but, as with most supposed stuff with prerelease software and alphas and betas, you have to take it all with a grain of salt.

    Thanks for all your help Nakor. I will try it on a spare hard drive if I ever get it.

    PsychoClowns, Longhorn is not new. The project announcement was stated when Windows XP was released.

    Why would you want it? The beta doesn't support any software or internet connections, so it's basically useless.
