    Vista public build 5384, nerds build 5472

    5384, ......., 5472 ?

    What happened to all the numbers in-between ?

    Why don't MS programmers just use consective numbers,

    when they let bulids lose on the nerds or public ?

    Are the missing numbers only used in-house for the
    different programming teams ?

  2. Grumpy,

    The way builds work are numbered in consecutive numbers. Just that they
    don't release consecutive builds to the public. A build is done and tested
    internally around the clock.

    Hope that helps,

  4. They are EDW builds and are mostly internal at MS. MS does a new build
    overnight on most nights.

    we need a desperate update of 5472 ASAP. can not run any admin controls.
    They certainally must have been on Summer Break when they tested this build!

  6. Why the desperation? You're just trying it out. It's not like you were
    using it for any productive work.

    Oh it's just annoying to have to go back and forth between admin and the
    other's all ok...the only way to really test it is to use it on the
    things I access daily though. Better to find out these things now....

    The unsung heros at MS are the all night teams of busy
    little over night programmers, you all are keeping the
    coffee industry profitable, well done boys and girls.

    You all make Santas elf's proud.
