WindowsvistaultimateFor Windows Vista Ultimate users, the “extras” that were promised have been a bit disappointing thus far. While four different extras have been released (Windows Hold’ Em, 16 Language Packs, Secure Online Kay Backup, and Windows Bitlocker Drive Preparation Tool), one of the most anticipated, DreamScene, has not yet been released in its final form.

And to make matters worse, the Ultimate Extras team has been so quiet over the last several months. It’s been a while since they’ve given us any idea that they were still even working on Ultimate Extras (Since March), so the latest update today is long over-due.

Okay, so we know they’re alive. That’s great. But, they don’t give any indication of what’s coming other than to say that Windows DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs will finally be delivered by the end of the Summer. They do mention that over the next couple of years they intend to deliver more extras which they are “confident will delight our passionate Windows Vista Ultimate Users.”

It would have been nice if they were able to give us even a hint at what they had in store for over the next couple of years, just to spark some interest, but they don’t. Maybe they don’t even know what’s in-store for the next two years? Hopefully they get better at communicating with their community as to what they have going on. Great communication can make all the difference in the world!

If you purchased Ultimate, was it worth it? Are there any extras that you’d like to see?
