Windows Vista Ultimate extras exposed

Since the very first public beta campaigns, Windows Vista Ultimate was said to have "extras", which would be unveiled once Vista was public. Now, Microsoft has stashed those extras in with Windows Update. At this point, those extras include Texas Hold 'Em, Bitlocker, EFS enhancements, and various security patches. There will probably be more as Microsoft makes them.Source: EnGadget

Thats a scary sad idea... But I don't think microsofts programing team could even understand the source code for a linux os. They would look at it and just kinda go huh?!?!?!?:ohwell:
You must be joking. One of the most powerful companies on the planet, that's right - they must have teams of chimps. Making billions and billions of dollars.

Or more people could learn how to really use a computer... And actually compile their own version of linux...:cool:
Oh give me a break, learning how to "really" use a computer has absolutey NOTHING to do with knowing how to compile your own version of Linux. Why the hell should anyone have to do that, the OS is supposed to be a transparent interface to hardware - something no one should ever have to think about. I guess we should all have to build our own cars from the ground up, build our own houses from ground up - might as well go back to farming for ourselves too.

So, show me your own version of Linux that you've compiled. Is it Niko Linux?

Dreamscene allows you to use a looped movie clip as your desktop backround, instead of just a picture.

I don't really know for sure, but I'm guessing no. MS usually forces people into using .wmv for things of this nature.

nice, looks like Ultimate comes with lots of gifts. :D
I'll get the Ultimate myself after some MONTHS when Home Premium will become more common, and some stable drivers ;)
