Back in July, Barry Goffe (Director Windows Vista Ultimate) mentioned that the missing Extras identified in January would be released at the end of the summer. I just got a bit curious about when these Extras would finally be released, so I visited windowsultimate.com again. And there it was: DreamScene was released recently (September 25th). And although I’m not quite sure if I’ll use this ever day, it’s kind of a cool feature. Isn’t it?
On the other hand: I’m still waiting for more Ultimate Extras. The ones Barry Goffe talks about are only Windows DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs. But Microsoft made us believe there would be so many more. I can imagine the extras were a reason for a people to choose Ultimate. Let’s see if Microsoft will “ship a collection of additional Windows Ultimate Extras over the next couple years that we are confident will delight our passionate Windows Vista Ultimate customers“. According to the blogpost, “once we ship Windows DreamScene and the remaining Language Packs, we will provide more information about the next Extras“. We’ll see.
