Windows "When we launched Windows Vista in January 2007, we identified Windows Ultimate Extras as a unique series of add-ons that would be available to Windows Vista Ultimate customers. To date, we have released four sets of Extras - Windows Hold'Em, 16 Language Packs for the Windows multi-language user interface, Secure Online Key Backup, and Windows BitLocker Drive Preparation Tool. We want to let our Windows Vista Ultimate customers know that we are actively working to deliver the remaining Extras that we identified in January."

Even the Vista Ultimate Extras list is good ilustration
of the lack of innovations and failed expectations from Redmond coders.
"Developers!Developers!Developers!" was what Steve Balmer was screaming at MS annual developers conference year or two ago ( if I remember well) trying to fulfill "promisses, promisses, promisess"
while deleivering only "failures,failures and failures"

What a relief not having Ultimate code of any kind
running on my CPU!
