Longhorn loses its build lab tag. Exposed 4015 M5

Thanks aquadex from our BPN Forum...

Now that we've all had the opportunity to play with Windows 2003 for a few weeks now, anyone ready for a real desktop operating system? Well its not that good yet but its obvious that codename Longhorn is progressing in leaps and bounds. With the 2003 team all free and coming back from vacation soon, we can expect much more regular glimpses at Microsoft's next-gen desktop. Build 4015, although only 7 builds away from our last glimpse, notice the build date. They are obviously not up to the full build speed that we can expect with betas.

    Points of note:

    (Build 4015.main.030328-1500) DX 9 (9.0.900)

    WMP 9 (2991)

    Windows Messenger 5

    A curious kill button which kills and restarts Explorer, located on the sidebar.
