Depends on who you are. Unless you work at Microsoft, the answer is
probably NO.

Please configure you news client to NOT put vcards here. Thanks

And you're posting with Netscape?
Microsoft employee is certainly not a possibility here... :)

I think we're talking about builds generally available... among which yours
is not.

I'm downloading #1906 now, if it ever completes. Freaking
5.5k/sec - the whole world must be trying to snag it too...

Two points:

1. This is not a legitimate build. It has not been released and can only
be found (outside of MS) on warez sites. If you have access to this
legitimately, you may discover your NDA forbids you to discuss these
publicly.

2. It may not be very stable. 1906 is one of a set of daily builds. You
may find it works, but you may also find issues. If you do have
problems, please report these to the place you got the build from,
rather than here.

If you will download warez, I suppose you deserve what you get (or, in
this case, don't get). :-(

Funny, I don't see anyone discussing any issues with this build publicly. I
just mentioned it was coming down the pipe. I may install it, then again I
may not; who cares if I update #1877 anyway?

No one is reporting problems about #1906 build, just a simple statement
about it coming down the pipe...

No one said it was off a warez site, what if it is a legitimate site? Calm
down buddy, go get yourself another cup of coffee...

Thomas was merely trying to head off any potential problems for you by
stating a couple of things. There are many ways for people to obtain
illegal versions of NT 5.0 builds and often times they will pass them along
to friends or post them on the web.

Sooner or later we begin to get a bunch of people that are seeking help for
unsupported builds because it crashed their machines, etc, which simply
slows down the beta process. In order to properly participate in the beta
program, only official beta released builds can be used, etc. It becomes
frustrating when people break those rules and then later seek help.

Be weary of any builds that are not official beta released builds,
regardless of where it comes from (including from MS buddies :-)

You mentioned it - I didn't.

It is unlikely that you will have access, legitiately, to later builds
and not have access to the support forums that go with that access
(hint: this is not that place).

See above.

There are no legitimate sites for this build outside Microsoft. And if
you have legitimate access, you will know what your NDA says.

Please: if you want brag rights, use the warez forums (those folks seem
more impressed with interim builds). Here we concentrate on the builds
that are legitimate.
