Windows 7: Ultimate Extras Is Dead

Ultimate Extras Is Dead

Windows 7 factoid: Ultimate Extras is dead!

Just a quick note: At a reviewers workshop last Sunday, Microsoft confirmed that Windows Ultimate Extras will not be a feature of Windows 7. They would not discuss which product editions will make up that release, however.

Just a reminder before this does the usual spin into the weeds: Ultimate Extras is not the same thing as Vista Ultimate. It's just one little feature of that release.

This is all that was posted at this source.
