Builds 6.0.3663.0.Lab06_N

General information

  • x86

This is the very first build of Longhorn of which screenshots exist. This build still looks a lot like Windows XP / Server 2003 as it is an extremely early build, though some changes to the UI were made.

Four authenticated screenshots have been publicly released. These were originally published by Calvin Zhang, and were watermarked and distributed by the xBetas release group. These screenshots have since been re-released with no watermark.

A second set that supposedly shows Build 3663 exists. These screenshots cannot be reliably authenticated however, since they were released by an anonymous source. They show a subtly different user interface in some screenshots, but it seems probable that all differences can be accounted for by customisation options included in the build.

A long-standing rumour suggested that Longhorn Build 3663 did leak at some point in the past, but that the download was removed before a significant number of people were able to download it. It also asserts that no-one who had successfully downloaded it chose to share it publicly. However, there is no evidence to support this rumour, so it can be reasonably assumed that this never actually happened.
