Sorry, oops. I seem to recall having read somewhere that the XP release was originally supposed to have been based on the Longhorn project and got scaled back to being a bunch of interface changes to Windows 2000, thus XP was 5.1 to W2K's 5.0. But my recollection is probably quite muddled at this point, 21 years or so down the road.

It's fine. Beta-testing Windows OSes ain't exactly easy anyways.

Btw there is no need to face-reveal yourself. I didn't force you upload it.

I never claimed that you did. It was only in response to "That was supposed to be for him" that I posted my image.
