That would be cool. I would definitely watch any windows beta builds into it's final form once it's made into a video to be honest. I believe that MJD had already done this with Windows XP...

Oh. True that though...

Anyways, Microsoft Chicago looked strange to me even though it is beta builds, because it looked like this for example. No Maximize, or close buttons yet. Program Manager looks like it was shrunk down to the taskbar in this picture that I have found before Microsoft had changed their mind and introduced what we now know today as the start menu which was introduced in Windows 95, removed in Windows 8 & 8.1, and re-introduced in Windows 10...

Much like the earlier Chicago versions, it just looks like 3.1 but with different features.

Anyone have any idea of how to get Build 56, and 58s in Vmware, Virtualbox, or VPC2007?
Thanks, from Meow2004
