Windows Neptune is a version of Microsoft Windows that was being made during 1999 and January 2000. Windows 2000 was released as an operating system for businesses and people that know how to use computers well. Windows Neptune was going to be a version of Windows 2000 that was easier for home users to use. Nobody knows if Microsoft was ever going to release Windows Neptune[source?]. After Microsoft stopped developing it, some of its features were merged with Windows 2000's and a new project, "Whistler", was formed. "Whistler" was later released as Windows XP.
Only one known confirmed version of Windows Neptune exists. Windows Neptune Build 5000, which is said to be released to very few people, is most likely fake, since there is no reference to it whatsoever. Windows Neptune Build 5111, which exists on the Internet, is a confirmed built. It used to be hard to get hold of, but now it can easily be found.
