FAKES (LIAR)
Internal Test Release #3 - Not a build, just screenshots of what Windows may have been according to screenshots
Final Beta Release - 2 resasons for fake: 1. Windows did not have a bootscreen in 1984. 2. Beta was made August of 1985. (seems off.)
Codename Pegasus Version 0.99 - not a build. Just a mislabel.
1.00 - Very debatable, but screenshots that have appeared have been proven fake.
