This build introduces the Out Of Box Experience (OOBE) to Whistler with Merlin as your helping hand.
It still uses the bright white background as default and many of the icons have been updated to Windows XP style.
Outlook Express now has version 6 branding.
During the OOBE it asks for Windows Activation but is non-functional.

It also still included the Testing Visual Styles, although not featured on the screenshots.
