Ultimate Extras – Still Alive

The Windows Ultimate Extras team said today on their blog that the service exclusive to Vista Ultimate customers is still being worked on, primarily in areas of stability for the Windows Dreamscene and additional language packs.

"We intend to ship Windows DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs by the end of the summer. We will not ship the last two Extras showcased in January (Windows DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs) until they meet the high quality bar required by our enthusiastic customers—and we believe that we can achieve that bar by the end of this summer.

We also intend to deliver additional Extras in the future. In addition to Windows DreamScene and the remaining Language Packs, we plan to 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."

I am at least pleased to hear that they are working ensure its stable, since I have experienced a few glitches here and there on Vista x64 with DreamScene installed. At the same time, I am a bit disappointed it is taking such a long time to deliver updates (with no dates specified for future releases. It makes you wonder if the Vista Ultimate SKU was planned from the beginning with the other editions or a last minute addition to the line up. Small hints of this can be seen even in the Ultimate packaging where DreamScene is labeled as its former code name Motion Desktop. Still, I am pleased with some information from the team, lets hope they deliver.
