Microsoft Longhorn Build 5048 at WinHEC
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 4/25/2005 02:57:00 PM.

Three hundred and fifty three days, that's how long its been since the outside world has been given a peek at the state of Windows, Codename Longhorn.

On that day, almost a full year ago now, at WinHec 2004 we received the Longhorn build 4074 DVD in our kit; as recently as today I saw someone in our IRC channel seeking a download of that same build. The long drought for a new build of Longhorn is officially over. I proudly present to you, build 5048...

What follows is not an assessment of stability nor critique of its features, but a peek into what we might be able to expect from a more complete operating system. Jim Allchin, vice president of Microsoft Platforms Group, has publicly predicted Longhorn is to be only 1/3 feature complete at the time of Beta 1. I don't think it too fair that we judge this pre-beta build to par with an OS that one would feel comfortable with on a day to day basis. Qualifying statements aside, I will comment though that with the limited time spent with this build, its been very very well behaved. I even left it booted for two days straight without it leaking memory all over my desk.
