Windows Ultimate Extras are quite a mystery. Now if you're going to spend the big $$ on Windows Ultimate, what would you expect?

I'm disappointed with the sound scheme and the wallpapers in Vista Ultimate; I hoped for Wow and got WT*??! That's it??!.

:cool:

I've really started to wonder if Business would be a better choice then Ultimate. Be it that I'm getting it for free, I may not spend any money on Ultimate at all since the "extras" aren't that great.

I think that Extras are not going to be worth the extra bucks. It will probably be nothing more than a lame "Plus" Pack for Vista with gimmicky fluff. :hmmm: But I hope I'm wrong.

For what it's worth, I think Home Premium will be best value Vista edition. (Y)

A Pony will do me just fine. :shiftyninja:

After the big disappointment with Plus for Windows XP, I would rather spend the money and buy a nice Pony. :D

My Parents never did Buy me that Pony they Promised. :cry: :laugh: :p

:D My second choice would have been a pony too, seriously now. These Ultimate Extas better be worth the extra $ Microsoft is asking for it.

Yea or we will get the same treatment we got with XP

They hyped the "Themes" thing, then officially released what.. 5 themes over the life of the OS?

So prepare for a couple of free things that you can get better versions of on the net for free from someone who is more creative.

Seeing as their is much interest in Ponys, How many would want a subforum called Pony Fans?

I have "Ultimate" for the Media Center, and anything from the "Ultimate Extras" is simply a bonus. Willl I be a little disapointed if it only consists of a few themese / screensavers? Yes, but then again I didn't buy it for that...

On the flip side, this is the first OS from MS that I actually look forward to having something like a "PLUS" pack. The theme capability has real potential since the desktop is accelerated.

Media center isnt a ultimate feature...it's a premium feature

With something like Business, compared to Home Premium, I get rid of the Media Center, Parental Controls, Movie Maker, and DVD Maker, while gaining Remote Desktoping for working from home along with a couple of other things like Shadow Copy, so especially the Home editions don't feel like it would be right for me.

And Ultimate just has that "stuff I won't use" + "stuff I will use", so it's not really of much use either and just feels like a lot of cruft I won't use in that one.

As for any home entertainment tools missed that I might need, I'll probably just use third party tools for this anyway that I often find better. It's their business-oriented OS features that feels a bit harder to replace. Enterprise Edition would probably be the best, having BitLocker as well in addition to the features of the Business Edition while still cutting the toy crap. :)

It'll probably be just games, wallpapers, themes and stuff, seeing how Plus! isn't being made anymore.
