And with this build we reach Milestone 6, which means another wallpaper change, this time for a red one instead of blue.
The same login is kept from 4029 as well as the bootscreen, the pig latin is still present.

The sidebar is a bit more empty and the clock is bigger.
Plex has been updated a bit, like removing the Windows Flag, and the Computer icon has been replaced.
In the Control Panel the Sync Manager has a new icon as well as the icons in Explorer's Game Library have been updated.

On the desktop there is a new icon called File a Longhorn bug which leads to an internal website.

Outlook Express has now a functioning about box displaying the Outlook Express 7, Windows Messenger has also been updated to version 6.0, still for internal usage only.
Internet Explorer 6 is still present as 6.05 and the toolbar is now besides the menu bar instead of being below it.

Windows XP's Luna (3 variants, blue, olive green and silver) and the Windows Classic are still available, but when chosen as with the previous build the Plex Taskbar and Sidebar are still displayed.

Included in this build is an internal application named VoteNow.exe it display's a message so that the employees using that build can vote the build after some time (~4 hours).

It seems that the Desktop Notification that should display with 'You have been using this Longhorn build for a few hours now. By using the Vote Now button below, you can vote to let us know what you think of it. To learn more, click this text. is broken in this build, due to it doesn't display after the set amount of time.
