If you were one of the people who forked over extra money for Vista Ultimate because of Microsoft’s promise of soon-to-come “Ultimate Extras,” you haven’t been particularly pleased with Microsoft. The company has only delivered a handful of underwhelming “Extras” to date, and it’s not clear at all what it will deliver in the future.
Users have become increasingly frustrated with the lack of “Extras,” and have been complaining about it with increasing vigor. Until recently, Microsoft has ignored the problem. Recently, though, it had to take note, and half-heartedly addressed the problem.
Microsoft publicly apologized on its Vista Extras blog for not delivering. But According to Computerworld, it’s not exactly clear what they’ll do about it.
According to the article, “The group also said it would develop and distribute other Extra add-ons for Vista Ultimate but did not specify the number or a timetable, except in the most general terms.”
Where does that leave Vista Ultimate buyers? Exactly where they started.
I’m a user of Vista Ultimate, and I’ve been pleased with it; it gives me every feature of every version of Vista. For me, that’s worth the price of the software. But if you’ve been waiting for Extras, you may as well be waiting for Godot.
