As anyone's that's sprung for the top-end Vista Ultimate can tell you, the much-ballyhooed "Ultimate Extras" have been anything but, having all but ceased after a brief Texas Hold 'Em-fueled flurry when they first went live. Now it seems that even Microsoft itself has owned up to their utter lameness, with Vista Ultimate director Barry Goffe taking the somewhat unusual step of issuing an apology on his blog. In addition to saying sorry for "taking so long to provide a status update to customers," Goffe says that Microsoft is on track to release the long-in-development DreamScene add-on by the end of the summer, along with an additional 20 language packs, and a couple of yet-to-be-announced mystery extras.
