whistler or neptune builds

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Does anyone know of anywhere where earlier builds (just for curiosity) are available i.e whistler with the boxes on the window bar - or even neptune?

Any help would be greatly appreciated......

Such as Whistler beta 1? Oohh. . that's a hard one. Good luck finding some of those older builds. I'm sure someone will have a copy, I knew a guy who actually collected OSes. . He even had a Russian MS-DOS. .

The earliest build that I have is 2462, but I'm sure that if you dig around, you can find people with much earlier builds than that, possibly back to beta 1 :)

Well, IRC is where you will probably find it, but beware, some of those guys can be really anal - and with good reason. Everyone and their mother has been asking for files from them, leeching from their FSERVEs (of which I am also guilty), etc. If they snap at you, try to let it slide. If you're nice enough, they'll probably let you have an older copy if they have it.

Why do you want an older copy anyway?

could u possibly tell me the exact filesize and build number of the usa RC2 - i think ive found somewhere to get it but I want to make sure its not corrupted/is the right one.

Also,

would it be a problem installing this in a country outside USA - would it make a mess of my dial up settings etc..?

thx again

i actually used to have a very very very early alpha build that leaked out of whistler, seriously, it was right after 2k went rtm... i might have put it on a cd somewhere... but it's been a long time...
