  • The source code of build 782 has leaked. I'm not going to link directly to it due to its sensitive nature but it's on an "archive" site.

    Yup, but the problem is compiling it.

  • It was determined that build 854 is a very early build of 3.51, because of its features that are similar to build 896 (not available here). This happened after the leak of build 896.
  • This was further confirmed when build 889 leaked with the same feature set.
  • Apparently, NT 3.5 PPC is not supposed to exist:

    "Windows NT 3.51 was dubbed the Power PC release, because it was designed around the Power PC version of NT, which was originally supposed to ship in version 3.5. But IBM constantly delayed the Power PC chips, necessitating a separate NT release. "NT 3.51 was a very unrewarding release," Thompson said, contrasting it with Daytona. "After Daytona was completed, we basically sat around for 9 months fixing bugs while we waited for IBM to finish the Power PC hardware. But because of this, NT 3.51 was a solid release, and our customers loved it." NT 3.51 eventually shipped in May 1995."
  • Well, the IBM OEM release sure seems to exist.
