Build 5600 of Longhorn is one of the first "release candidate"s of Longhorn. It's also one of the first builds to advertise itself as being "Vista".

Longhorn 5600 Setup
The setup process has now basically been transformed into that which is present in the final version of Vista.

Longhorn 5600 Splash
The splash screen is now identical to the one in Vista as well.

Longhorn 5600 Login
The login has been made to look like Vista's too. I believe the standard XP login is also present.

Longhorn 5600 Welcome Center
This build also contains the Welcome Center, as present in Vista.

Longhorn 5600 User Account Control
Also included with this build is one of the first incarnations of the User Account Control annoyance.
