I went to Windows Update tonight to patch up a new Vista VM I recently installed and got the shock of my life....NEW Vista Ultimate Extras! It's been a long time since we had any Extras come out. I haven't had a chance to play with any of them yet except for the Dreamscene stuff (which I should note I rarely have active), but Sarah in Tampa has a post up over at ON10 about the Tinker Game.
Extras.... oh no.. I'll never get any work done now. :P
The worst extra (for being a cool time killer) was that stupid Marbles game thrown in with the Windows 98se plus pack. Oh the time you could kill with that.
I think it was just those clean high quality sounds of marbles with the pleasing colours. The kid in me just couldn't walk away from that game... :)
Do you have the ultimate version and activate?
Yes....The Ultimate Vista version is the only one with DreamScene and yes, it needs to be activated.
I love Dreamscene. I was amazing when I saw it running at the launch for Vista (Heroes Happen Here) you did in Portland, Oregon. I am still amazed at it. Although, I run Dreamscapes from Stardock as well, which have a large selection of great backgrounds.
I am amazed at what Vista has brought to the table with WDM. Can't wait to see what is in store with Windows Seven. And I love eye candy. A lot of people don't. But with so much power available from my system, why not put it to use!?
