Microsoft has 2 & 1/2 days left until Summer ends and the first day of fall
officially starts. and still no word on what or if anything is happening
with Ultimate Extras. The Ultimate Extra blog still hasn't been updated
since July 2nd when it said it intended to deliver DreamScene and the
Language Packs by the end of summer.
"We intend to ship Windows DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs
by the end of the summer. We will not ship the last two Extras showcased in
January (Windows DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs) until they
meet the high quality bar required by our enthusiastic customers-and we
believe that we can achieve that bar by the end of this summer".
I don't know about you, but I am beginning to think they won't make it and
its a real shame that a huge corporation fails to keep its Software users
up-to-date on whats going in with the development of the extras.

Did they mention what year the end of summer release was going to be
in? Or have they redefined the end of summer to be something mroe user
friendly for themselves?

It annoys the poo out of me, when manufacturers announce that "Product X
will be ready by summer" ... or winter, or spring or, um, "Fall" (whatever
that might be).

They don't seem to realise seasons vary, depending where you are on the
planet.

Here in Australia, we're currently in Spring, and looking forward to Summer
starting in a couple of months.

Hmmm, maybe the Ultimate Extras guys were thinking of the *Southern* summer?
Maybe we'll see those updates by February 08? :)

"We will not ship the last two Extras showcased in January (Windows
DreamScene and the remaining 20 Language Packs) until they meet the high
quality bar required by our enthusiastic customers..."

That's a catch-all phrase. Doesn't matter if it is the end of summer, they
said if it isn't ready it isn't ready. So they could still be telling the
truth...

Might coincided with Server 2008 and Vista SP1 release...
