In early July, I wrote about The Ultimate Team's intention to ship the
remaining promised Ultimate Extras (DreamScene and the remaining Language
Packs) by the end of the summer. Unfortunately summer never really came to
Seattle this year-so we missed our cue. That being said, we are pleased to
announce that Windows DreamScene is now available.



As most of you already know, Windows DreamScene transforms your desktop from
a static wallpaper image into a full-motion video. In conjunction with
Stardock, we're pleased to also offer a number of cool, new animated
DreamScene desktops, including "Aurora". Additionally, you can use your own
videos as DreamScene desktops or visit Stardock's Dream.WinCustomize.com
website to download Stardock's DeskScapes (an add-on to DreamScene) as well
as a collection of fabulous content created by Stardock and members of the
Ultimate community.



While we are excited about shipping DreamScene, the remaining 19 language
packs are, unfortunately, not yet ready for release. Recently we realized
that Ultimate customers who tried to install the language packs that shipped
earlier this year were experiencing an unacceptably high number of failures
during installation. We continue to make delivering the highest quality,
most secure Extras our top priority, and we will not ship any Extra until it
is absolutely ready. We know this is disappointing, and again we apologize,
but we are working hard to ensure that all of the remaining language packs
will be ready for release by the end of October.



On a different topic, as the broad beta for Windows Vista SP1 nears, people
have noticed that the screen which welcomes customers to Windows Ultimate
Extras has changed. Our intent in making this change was simply to broaden
the definition in anticipation of a broader range of Ultimate Extras being
available in the future-that do not necessarily map to the original, narrow
definition.



While I can understand how community sites and bloggers may have read the
new definition and assumed that Microsoft is not shipping any more Extras,
in reality the opposite is true. In addition to the remaining Language
Packs, we plan to ship a collection of additional Windows Ultimate Extras
that we are confident will delight our passionate Windows Vista Ultimate
customers. We will shed more light on these plans once the Language Packs
are finally dislodged from our delivery pipeline!



Thanks for your patience and your continued support.



I look forward to sharing more positive news in the near future.
