(Lezend, this is not dissing you, cos I know u copy and pasted that stuff from M$ (was it the 'WindowsXP tour' thing?))

'you can free up significant disk space by converting your MP3 audio files to Windows Media Audio (WMA) files, while maintaining the same audio quality'

LOL - how can they try to say that applying a lossy compression on top of lossy compression can result in the same audio quality - even if u encoded to 256kps WMA, there WOULD be loss of sound quality because of the compression methods used.

Plus! Speaker Enhancement

- i didnt really notice much of a difference - althou it did make get XP to identify my speakers properly :)

Plus! 3-D Visualizations

'see the star of the Xbox game Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee dance on wheels'

as is obvious from this poll - which none of u have replied to LOL

i think the visualisations are a load of sh1t tbh, and the chances of abe's stupid little dance moving in proper time and rhythm to the music are very slim (and I dont have a slow PC b4 u say anything eheh), abe is obviously just there to advertise the XboX, which is obviously the same reason his stupid head is all over the main Plus! screen too.

yeh not much in the terms of practical use...

but I have to say I really like the Labyrinth game...

:)

and some of the screensavers are OK

In short, if ur a 56k'er I wouldnt really bother, unless u really have to have the latest stuff ;)

If ur cable or ADSL, I definitely would, Labyrinth! is v. good fun- althou I dont think its really a classic like Minesweeper (my record is 8 seconds in beginner).

anywayz - jus some of my thoughts eheh

PS I cant stress enuff how crap the abe's oddysee visualisation is - u will ROFL (and not in a good way, in a 'laughing at how crap it is' way)
