Windows NT 4.0 Cairo/Hydra

Windows NT 4.0 is the successor to the Windows NT 3.x release. In this release, the user interface from Windows 95 was integrated, making NT just as easy to use as its consumer counterpart. Internet Explorer was bundled, providing a web browser out of the box. Speed was improved by moving components into kernel-mode, at the expense of security and reliability - changes Windows is suffering from today, and is being reverted. NT 4 was followed up by Windows 2000.

Initial Windows NT 4.0 development went under the codename of Cairo and the associated Terminal Services build was under the codename of Hydra.

Cairo included an ambitious set of new technologies including a new user interface, distributed computing, content Indexing, and an object file system. The later features were canceled, and NT 4.0 became a more practical "shell update release". There is only one known build of Cairo.

Todo: Need to rename the files on the server once mirror syncing is in place.
